NPT sizes are weird.
It's probably a 1/2" NPT port. 1/2" pipe measures .840" o.d. so the i.d. of a port would obviously be a little less.

This chart from Mcmaster Carr is a good reference.

Thank you, that is very helpful! One more question---is there a "star" or "voting" system on this forum? Because you guys have been very helpful!

Thanks again!

Nope, not really. You're gonna find we like our horns and like helping others.


There's just too much damn fun to be had with them!

Not sure if it works, but you can "add to somebody's reputation".

Each individual post has a post number. Right next to that number is a balance scale icon. Try it out!

Go to your profile page.
Above your 6 red stars you have 1 green dot.
Hover over that dot and you will see that you are "on a distinguished road"

Yet another question...what is the name of the deal that the hose connects to the tank with (with the thing you pull out---1/2"NPT male on one end, hose goes into other end, and a deal that you push in toward the tank to release the hose, but only when the tank is empty)?

I've heard a couple of terms for them, Instant Tube Fittings & Push to Lock Tube Fittings.
