This si getting ridiculous. I went to two hardware stores and home depot, and nobody had a 1/4 NPT to 1/2" hose barb! I need this to install my Pierburg!

And who the hell carries 1/2" fuel injection hose anyway? Can't seem to find any of that, either.

Bah

I'm following the install directions from BEGi. The pump I have has a 1/2" barb coming out, so I'm trying to go from that to an L that will reduce from 1/2" to 5/16", which will then tie into the rest of the fuel system.

I'll be hitting up Fastenal Monday morning when they open.
