Where did you get the fittings for the hose connections and what size are they? I want to put my glass filter back in my 68 that doesn't have the stock fuel line anymore.

I did the same thing. You get fittings that are close then retap the housing. Dont remember the size though.

Here Amazon product
I’d love to hate Amazon, but there ability to connect you to obscure things with non-traditional sizes is hard to beat. I believe I checked McMaster Carr but they didn’t have the BSPT versions iirc.

Thanks for the help. So, this is the size you got and re taped the holes on the filter?

I didn’t have to retap the holes, the 1/8” BSPT fit. I used thread sealant. My fuel filter housing is new OEM Toyota (glass bowl is used per this thread), don’t know if the threads changed over the years. I also used these fittings in my original early (‘63) fuel pump - it has the prime lever - so I’m guessing these threads have been the same for a long time.

If I ever dump the dual carb/offenhauser setup and return to the single OEM carb (and replacement manifold) I'll run original fuel lines as best as possible. Right now I could go original from tank to filter, and filter to pump. Still have the fittings for the filter and pump. After that it gets custom because of the dual carb setup. So I got lazy since I'm not chasing OEM too much.
