Default 1904 Single barrel Holly fuel line Elbow ?

Anyone know where I can find a replacement for the brass elbow that goes to the single barrel 1904 Holley Carburetor on my 1960 GMC? It has a 1/8" male and female thread but has inverted flanges or similar for the fuel line, fuel line looks to have a 1/4" lip on the end. Thank you

if it is 1/8" pipe thread on the male end, then the female end will be inverted tubing thread, probably 5/16". take the old fitting with you to a O'Rileys or a NAPA and you should be able to get a new fitting. Hope this helps you.

There has been much discussion here over the years about this carb, most of it not very complimentary.
I still have mine in place after 50 years of 10 mpg at 55 freeway or 5 backroad and no problems.
I'm keeping mine. Keep yours.

Thanks I'm def keeping it. I haven't fired her up.in about 12 years so am trying to bring her back to life. I was able to finally find the fitting. Auto zone and Oriellies didn't have it, but my Napa did for $3.26! ��

I tried starting her and got nothing, but dim headlights using a new battery. It is an electrical issue that I need to sort out. My guess is the ground ?

Is it supposed to have the small fuel filter on the inlet fitting like the Strombergs did? I saw many Strombergs where that filter was removed and replaced with a bunch of brass fittings and an in-line filter installed.

the fuel filter is found under the cab in a housing with a cup much like the filter on a ford engine fuel pump. the NAPA p/n for the cartridge is 3271.
