call AN Plumbing or Paragon Performance and ask them about a steel replacement.

I MIGHT be wrong here, but I thought that the fitting on the block was M10x1.5, not M10x1.25.

I do recall that when I was doing my original setup, I never was able to find a straight fitting to go into the block and give me an AN outlet. So instead, I used a brake banjo fitting. They're available in both straight & angled, and while I can't remember exactly which one I used, the gist was something like this with one of these screwed into it. (Don't forget the washers.)

Yeah, it's -3AN instead of -4. Works fine.

Joe's right, my build sheet shows M10x1.5 as well. I used Paragon Performance pn PP-2966.

i got another from summit same alluminum **** atp had steel but it was gonna end up being like 50 bucks all said and done and that is outrageus imo. 4 an to 12x1.25 should not be that damn expensive.
