1966 SS396 brass oil fitting

Could someone be nice enough to post a picture of all the factory fittings needed to connect to a U14 factory oil gauge from the engine to the actual gauge?

I cannot figure out what I need.

Thanks
Mike Vercheak

Here's a kit. Posible that you may need an adapter at the block? Or a grommet for going thru the firewall...

You need something like this special fitting at the gauge... Not sure this is the correct one though...

Re: 1966 SS396 brass oil fitting

Jim,

Thank you very much for your reply. I was wondering if there was a special fitting that went in the block first.

Thanks again,
Mike

That is everything shown Walt. The Special clip #22 is almost impossible to find. In 66 the tube was a copper tube. In 67 that changed. If someone is looking for the correct fitting and tube you have to be careful when dealing with venders. James Hinshaw is the guy to contact.

Yes bushing 444026, then the fitting with the elbow goes into that. Then the connector, then the sleeve that connects the tube.

Hinshaw does list the Clip, Fittings, and Firewall Grommet page 30.

Re: 1966 SS396 brass oil fitting

Thanks for everybody's feedback and suggestions of what to do to solve my problem. I was hoping to be able to see a picture of the bushing and the fitting with the elbow to see what an original ones looks like as the drawing in the assembly manual is not that clear to me. I have some friends the a lot of different fitting and was hoping I might score an original one if I knew exactly what one looked like.

Thanks again for everyone's help and input as it is really appreciated.

Mike

Re: 1966 SS396 brass oil fitting

Now I know why I didn’t do this before. If you want the correct stuff call James hinshaw or paragon, otherwise cobble something together or get incorrect parts some some other vender.

1st photo shows copper tube from above, 2nd photo shows clip with tube through it at manifold bolt, 3rd photo is you guess as well as mine- connector/elbow/bushing.

Re: 1966 SS396 brass oil fitting

I think Heartbeat City (Camaro vendor) sells the right parts too.

But make note that I have seen several vendors offer a kit that is listed as being for all big blocks, but it is actually only correct for the 4-bolt main blocks. The fitting that screws into the block AND the elbow fitting are different on 2-bolt blocks versus 4-bolt blocks. So make sure whatever vendor you buy from lists both kits, so you know that they know the difference and will be sending you the right one.

Re: 1966 SS396 brass oil fitting

Thinking the different kits due to the oil cooler on the 4 block and no oil filter on the 2 bolt.

Is the oil line correct for 66? Looks correct for 67.

The 4 bolts are 3/4 pipe threads.

Couple of junkers and a few clunkers.
