  • Power steering line flaired fitting- ID anyone?

    I have this flaired tubing fitting from the power steering gear box of a '92 Ford 4-W which I can't ID. Thread pitch gage I have doesn't match the threads of this fitting. Inch or metric. Diameter is about .476/.488" and does not appear to be pipe thread. It's corroded which explains the .012" difference in measurement. 18 tpi is close and 1.3mm is close but neither gets a cigar. Anyone have details of flaired tubing dimensions? I can't find info on those fittings in the Machinery Handbook.

    Thanks ahead of time.

      FWIW, the metric Saginaw boxes as used in GM vehicles are 1.5 pitch

      More precisely: M16 x 1.5 or M18 x 1.5, depending on the hardware.

      The following image illustrates an Aeroquip "AN Flare-to-Metric" adapter
      for terminating hose with AN fittings into a metric boss/port. Perhaps your
      fitting looks like the right side of the fitting below?

        Thanks guys,
        My confused and wandering got me again!
        I needed the dimensions so I could modify the only fitting that I found which fit the new line but not where I was trying to place the new line. Because I can no longer stand on my head and work, dumbass me was trying to put the line in the wrong hole. No wonder my girlfriends always get mad at me, lol. When I figured out my mistake, the new fitting went in OK with out a reducer. Will wonders never cease. Next time, maybe I'll pull off the front fenders so I can SEE what I'm doing.
        Now, time to torch off the straps that hold that leaky fuel tank!
