Where do i get this fitting?

Need 2 pcs, 1 for the injection pump return line and 2 for the in/out of the lift pump.

From what I can find looks like it's 1/2 x 20unf thread with a barbed end on the other (using 5/16 fuel line)

Any ideas?

Lowes or Home Depot might have what you are looking for.

Not with the female flare on one end

I remember this same fitting being a pita when I did a 200tdi swap. And the place I got it from no longer exist.

I didn't realise that was for a flare fitting.

Interested in where the nipple you are looking for is fitted on the injection pump return line?

I am assuming you are still running the 200Tdi?

I changed mine to a normal union compression fitting. Steel tubing to nylon tubing. The stock fitting are custom.

That s a good idea, I hate the heat molded nylon fuel line. I was contemplating going to clear blue urethane on my truck

So did you just cut the pipe coming from the lift pump, and then put on a comp fitting with ferrule?

Id rather not cut pipes if i can avoid it. Im sure there is a way to get this fitting.

Thank you for that. Yes Deff tapered so probably NPT

I'll bring it to a store tomorrow to see if I can get the thread size / type down

I just know I need to have that bevel at the end to match up to the flare which I doubt any standard male/barbed adapter is going to have.

So this is the direction im going. Not really any other option. Do you know what size comp fitting you used? 5/16?

So I picked up some 5/16 comp fittings and that worked well on the injection pump return. I was able to cut off the old ferrule rather easily with a fine hacksaw blade.

However on the lift pump I realized the fitting I bought stuck too far out and interfered with the vacuum pump. I could get a 90 and use that but I realized there is 2.5" of tubing that sticks out and the 5/16 hose I have fit snugly around it. I know there is no barb but I figured this is low pressure anyways. Just for giggles I slid the hose on the bare tube and tightened the band clamp. Sure enough a super snug fit that I can't pull off by hand. I know this isn't as good of a fit as a barbed fitting but I don't see how this will be an issue at all. The other end of the lift pump I used the one originally fitting I had


I actually feel more confident in the connection without the ferrule, comp fitting and barb then I do on the injection pump. I just see too many points of failure on that

I may just remove it and flare the end a bit (plenty of room to do so) and do the same thing, slide the hose directly over the tube itself.

I just need a section of 1/4" hose to go from the fuel filter housing to the Input of the IP and the plumbing will be done. Well that and the fuel pick up assembly.
