Fram HPG-1 install

Has anyone installed Fram's HPG-1 fuel filter? I'm trying to run a 3/8" hard line into it using a 3/8" NPT fitting, but the threads inside the housing of the filter go all the way through. There's nothing for the NPT fitting to butt up against. I'm going to try an NPT union and double female combo to get it to work. Any better ideas?

I believe you need another fitting. The fuel filter housings that I have used needs a NPT ( nation pipe tap ) end on one end and a female flared fitting end on the other.

Duece - That looks pretty close to what I need. Where would I find something like that? The local parts stores are no help. Is that a plumbing supply piece?

I get mine at NAPA........any good auto parts house should be able to help you.

Also some fluid control stores...not a plumbers supply.....a fluid control store ....they sell hydraulic lines, fittings and supplies. We have two or three stores like this in my town. I go to NAPA because the NAPA state warehouse is on my way to town......and they support the #15 Nascar Chevy......

If no luck, look at Summit, Jegs or Ray Godman.....

Well, I watch Nascar.......
