Changed the fuel filter today. No problem, except the outfeed hose connection nut is splitting. It nipped up OK but needs replacing. I assumed that the chandlers would have a number of female hose tails with loose nuts.
But No. nothing like it. I have also looked on the internet.

Am I using the incorrect term?

Have I assumed that the fitting is of one type when it is something else. Fuel hose with jubliee clip on to brass fitting, female nut to male male fitting into the 1/4 npt CAV filter.

I just did not take too much notice as i thought I knew what it was and it would be easy to pick one up on the way home
