I think I posted this in the Wanted forum last year, but it's vanished, seems that housekeeping kicks in after a while and old posts get swept away. Logical, I suppose.
 
So, at last it's come near the top of the To Do list again, and I'm looking for a new m/c like this one on my Ambo.
Single circuit, 3/8" outlet.
 
 
I want it for the nice big filler cap. I have a replacement from Rock, but it's impossible to see inside their silly little plastic cap without a torch.
 
Oh, and yes I did get an old one from a helpful Forum member in Australia, and I had it rebuilt, but when I came to fit it I found the outlet was 5/16", so it ended up as an expensive paperweight.
 
I believe these were used on a variety of cars, not only AMC, and someone kindly posted a link but it's vanished along with the original Topic, so if anyone knows where I can get one, that will be appreciated.

Thankyou.
That seems to be a rare beast, I saved a search for it.
 
I think previously someone pointed to a MOPAR item, I could be wrong. Should have done something about it at the time.

Dorman offers several that look like that but I didn’t dig into their specs for specifics.

That happened to a friend of mine, so he went to the O-Reilly's parts store, and bought a step up adapter, and it worked perfectly. He asked for a 5/16" inverted flare male x 3/8" inverted flare female adapter fitting. They were totally confused, so he asked to look at the brake adapter fittings, and they had several in stock, and did not even know what in the world they were, just button pusher kids who know "SQUAT' about cars! Don't lose hope, it can work. I can't find the link, but this is a pic of one.

Aha!
I tried to find an adaptor last year, no luck.
The nearest I came is to fit a 3/8 pipe to a 1/8 NPT outlet.
 
Now I know they exist in the right size, I'll look harder. Would be a shame to paperweight that cylinder as it cost me over $300 by the time it was shipped and rebuilt with a stainless liner.
 
Over here in the UK we're largely gone foreign with fittings, but there are some potential sources.
 
The Mustang cylinder has a 1/8 NPT outlet, so no go as a direct swap. Pipe fittings and threads can be a right pain.
