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???
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.
