1957 Single Oil Pipe Bore

Postby spookefoote1956 » Thu Jan 02, 2020 7:41 pm

Anyone know off the top of their head. I know that one is a bigger bore than the other due to the mesh filter. Mine has the long pipes with short connecting rubbers.

Cheers, Chris :beer:

They're the same size, 1/2" bore. The gauze filter fits up inside the oiltank outlet.

I've never found that, probably because they're usually a bit bent.

Yes, that's what I assumed when I did my restoration, no gauze in the tank, order a new one and then find the original in the oil pipe :roll:
