Everything else / Fuel lines - Banjo Union & Bolt
« on: June 30, 2019, 05:34:03 PM »
Hi everyone, I'm a new member here with a Lister HA2M dated 1959 in my canal boat.

When I purchased the boat in 2009, it had a gravity feed system so fuel was manually pumped up from the main tank to a top tank in the engine room.

I'm currently overhauling the engine room, a complete clean and repaint and to gain more space in the engine room I've removed the top gravity feed tank and I'm in the process of changing it to a lift pump feed.

I've mounted the lift pump on to the engine but noticed the feed from the pump to the filter is very close to the oil filler on the crank case door, and that also the 3/8" copper pipe that I'll be using will have to pretty much double back on itself to go towards the Purolator fuel filter.

I've ordered the new 3/8" copper pipe and all of the necessary compression fittings, apart from the banjo union and bolt for the fuel lift pump which has a 1/2" UNF connection. I've searched for hours for a suitable banjo kit but have found nothing but unions with hose tails which isn't what I need.

My question is...

Does a  banjo union with a 1/2" threaded UNF male or BSP male joint exist?

If anyone can help point me in the right direction it'd be very much appreciated.
