Anyone reproducing these? I'll have to look at what I have installed on mine but I can bet it isn't the original.

Gary, from my research this style of fitting is generally what's available from the reproduction parts suppliers:

I'll have to look, but I may have that one, maybe not reproduction but one of the old school oil gauge set ups. I've had the car for a while, but only found out that the piece in your pick is correct.

Can anyone explain how the plastic tube works on the this fitting that Edgemontvillage has shown. I tried to install the same fitting on my friend's  69 Z28, last year and I could not get the plastic oil line to stop leaking oil on the male flare fitting that screws into the female fitting.

Assuming you've assembled the fitting correctly on the line, did you *reuse* the same piece of plastic line?  I typically reuse the line, but you may need to cut off the end part (that was cinched in the fitting previously) and use a new portion of the line for sealing.  Otherwise, it's purely in how the fitting is assembled, use a new compression seal, and don't overtighten initially.. put it snug (remember it's a small fitting and a plastic line), start the car to build pressure, and gradually tighten until the leak stops..  If you overtighten you will likely cause a leak.

The plastic oil line was new repro,  I had to cut the plastic oil line to remove the compression nut the compression furl and the brass tube insert. Pushed the plastic line though the fitting and installed the brass tube insert into the end of the plastic tube, screwed the fitting in the female fitting, but still could not get the plastic tube to bite onto the fitting no matter now much I tighten the fitting.

Use a new compression ferrule and a new section of line.
