Sorry, my mistake. Too many males. It's just for the oil feed on a 96 1.8.

1/8 bsp male x 1/8 npt female x 1/8 bsp female tee

can you pm me the price or send a url?

Thanks for the quick replies!

When i got my car it came with a piece of copper pipe that was threaded into the block with a standard brass fitting T on the end. I bet if you went to ACE you could rig something up that would work for you if you end up being real hard up.

ace will have 1/8 NPT, but not british.. if you're cranking NPT fittings into your block, just hope you never have to take it out..

If I was him I would buy your BSP fitting and then get a bushing to convert one of the female ports to whatever you needed. That or the BEGI part.
The tubing had been cut for a BSP thread on mine.

haha, funny you mention threading a npt into the bspt hole on the block. I did that for my ghetto oil sender tee and just used a bunch of permetex black to seal it. Worked great. When I took out the motor (that was the one I blew) and took out the sender and tee the threads on the brass(or is it copper?!?!) tee were the ones that were fucked up and not the block. Cast iron ftw!

Good idea, the only reason I did mine the way I did was because I HAD to have my car running and drivable within a day or two so that I could drive back to school. It ended up holding well and I put over 5k miles on it before I got power greedy and popped the motor.
