Ideas on how to mate a fuel pressure regulator to an existing carb feed line

Trying to mate this regulator:http://store.summitracing.com/partd...300725+4294846645+4294891655+115&autoview=sku


To this fuel line:http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=HLY-34-150&N=700+0&autoview=sku

Which means I'll need a 3/8 NPT to 5/8-18 adapter. Trouble is I can't find one and I've seen the two of these together.

Anyone have this set up? Which fittings did you use? or how did you make it work?

Thanx.

Junkyard,where do you plan to mount the regulator? Fenderwell?
Have you already bought the carb feed line you posted a link to? If not check the one in the link below. It has a guage and filter and 3/8 NPT inlet.Only $10. more ,but you'll save that on fittings alone.Then you can run 3/8 NPT from your pump to the reg. and 3/8 NPT from the reg. to the carb feed. I've run this with no problems for years.Check the engine pics in my showroom and you'll see the setup.The only difference is I run a braided line from the reg. to the carb inlet line. Hope this helps.Easier than finding aeromotive fitting AER-FBM2108,AER-FBM2915 and AER-FBM2005 (5/8-18 to 6an to 6an to 3/8 NPT).

Ken

Yes I already have the dual feed line. And I also already have one with a hose barb.

I was planning on connecting the regulator directly to the feed line.

Pipe nipple? there both 3/8 the inverted flare is 5/8-18 and connects to the fuel bowls correct? Ok read it again, buy the 3/8 inlet line or AN fittings with a coupling. Is the inlet flare?
