Default Help - What size NPT is this? Coolant Return line

Hey kids,

Changing my coolant supply and return lines to AN. Does anyone know what size this is tapped? I'm guessing it's NPT.



Thank you!

Closer pic, please. And a caliper measurement of the OD of the smallest part of the male fitting threads.

Looks like 3/8 or 1/4, but could easily be something oddball.

I vote for 3/8, but you need to give us a closer picture with something to compare it to size wise. Tape measure, scale, calipers, etc.

It's a BEGi part and it's 1/8th NPT! Who would have thought.
