    Default Longer Bulkhead Fitting

    I can't figure out where to post this up and get to the best group so I'll give it a shot here.

    I'm looking for an -8 bulkhead fitting that has a thread coverage area that is longer than the traditional 1" or 1 1/2".

    Now that I have you all confused, let me explain better. I'm attempting to run SS lines for my water intake on the pump and have a bulkhead fitting that is long enough to extend from the outside of the pump all the way through to the inside of the boat so I can nut it on my aluminum pump support plate that's tied to my rail kit for a clean installation.

    The more traditional bulkhead fittings I've seen all seem to be about an 1 1/2" too short.

    Anybody have any suggestions??? Dave, you out there???

    Thanks so much.........john

    Yup, I checked those out and they come up short. I really need something almost double that thickness.

    Fraid not. I'm not even close. To do what I'm "trying" to do, it really needs to be twice as long as those. I may have to regroup but it would look really clean if I can pull it off.

    I was just wondering if your fitting could also work as the jam nut. Looking, I know it exists.

    Hey John ,Outlaw may already have you covered, if not I went down that road with my 3" transom I ended up with just a #8 an to 1/2"npt(sticking out the transom plate) the went to lowes and bought a dble female 1/2" npt and a piece of galvanized pipe, It stuck just enougph threads through it allowed me to use another dbl female on motor side to tighten it all up. I hope that made a little sense I just woke up.

    Rex has long stainless ones. But I made these for jet boats with set back pumps. The threads are only 1" long though. They are blue anodized now.

    Wow! Thanks for all the replies and ideas. I'm going to be out in the shop all day and will take accurate measurements but it sounds like one of these options should work.

    Moderator, I apologize for the dble posts but I honestly didnt think I would get many replies (if any) and wasn't sure where would be the best spot to post up..........john

    Thanks again everyone......stay tuned
