Default Bay Area Fitting Supplier

I remember seeing someone talking about a good place to get oil feed fittings in San Jose, CA or nearby?? I need one part, -4AN female to -4AN female and dont want to pay shipping. If anyone has a good place let me know. Thanks.

ANPlumbing is great, but they're also in LA. Kyle, Royal Brass in San Jose (referred to as RBI on the forums) will have everything you'll need. They're a pneumatic supply store. They have a location in Santa Clara, but every time I've been to the SC location they've told me that what I need is only stocked in San Jose. :P

If you can get a -3AN line (better for oil feed, some have issues with too much oil with the -4AN lines) I actually have two different -3AN to 7/16-24 inverted flare adaptors, one that's just open and one that's got a .035 restrictor for BB turbos.

I already have the -4AN line and restrictor, just need the one coupling because I ordered the wrong part. Thanks for the info though. Did you get my email about the hood Savington?

Mr. Metric doesn't take walk-in orders anymore. The Olander Company on Commercial Drive between Central and Kifer is also good. For oddball stuff, Paragon Performance, AN Plumbing, and RBI is where I got pretty much everything, and pretty much everything for me was oddball because of the -3AN size that I wanted to use, as well as the fitting I have for the oil temp gauge in the feed line.

Kyle, I got your email about the hood; I can deliver it sometime or you can come and grab it.
