Fuel Hardline project: Braze on T-fitting?

Hi Guys, Iím not really a hot rod guy, but the more I look for parts for my various ideas for my project the more links to the hotrod community I come across. So here I am, the project is a '71 bmw 2002.


Iím looking for a braze-on T-fitting that accepts 5/16 (8mm) hardline. Theyíll be used on a Fuel setup for triple weber carbs. Similar to the T-fitting found on the fuel line setup in the picture. If not, any ideas would be appreciated.

This is the only site I found that has steel braze-on fittings - it says they are available in 1/16" increments (like A/N fittings - 5/16" = -5). I don't know where you go to buy them retail, but they have contact information - perhaps they can tell you. Good luck.

Why not flair the line and use a threaded "T"

I would use one of these from Swagelok. It's 1/4. Drill it out to 5/16.
