Can anyone tell me what size thread is on a Rochester 2 barrel fuel inlet fitting & where to get one from? I've checked autozone & O'reilly's no luck though.

if the threads are worn in the carb body a new fuel inlet fitting won't help... the repair style inlet nuts are marginal at best...

might be better off finding a new/different carb...

The threads are fine needed the size to give to the local auto store. It's more of the worn area around the nut any suggestions?

the threads in the carb may appear to be OK but the nut's material is harder than the carb body is... you'll possibly find that the threads are not ok... this is a common ailment of all Rochester's with a filter behind the nut, most remove the filter & spring and then cut the line and install an inline filter.

a bone yard will possibly have a nut, the part stores will only carry/supply a repair nut. which you can try. personally i prefer the style that seals with an O ring and not the self tapping style... which is the most common repair nut on the market...
