    I'm not too familiar with these compression fittings.
    Can you help a brotha out and give me a part # maybe??
    The 640850 fittings that I need 3 of are COMPLETELY out of stock
    Even Russell has no ETA for manufacturing them.
    Autozone said they can have them in 2 days......but they don't know from where....lol

    I will try to see if I can find these though...thanks.

    Autozone will be ordering them from a local speed parts supplier, aroudn here it would be Arrow, anyway, Arrow MIGHT have them in stock, but it's doubtful.

    I actually recieved my fitting TODAY, now to go out to the shop and be sure it is actually a 3/8" this time.

    I was about to give up and use a 3/8 hard tube adapter on the line.

    Here is a post from our own Schitzo that he made on LS1Tech.com:

    Go the Swagelok.com part # SS-600-6-6AN. This fitting will work on you corvette FFR 3/8 inlet and outlet((I have 3/8 tube in the female end) to a -6AN hose. It will also work at the fuel rail. I have to call them tommorrow for availability.Enter your zip and see if there is a local provider close to you. You also need another fitting for the 5/16 return from the FFR to -6AN hose. I could not find that fitting yet but I will call tommorrow. Acccording to the way Swagelok comes up with their part number, the fitting would have SS-500-6-6AN.


    If you search the conversions forum at LS1Tech.com using "compression fitting" as your search term you will find what you seek.

    Yeah....well I just got off the phone with Russell today...no go on that deal.
    No ETA for new parts either.....Jegs and Summit are a no go, Autozone is my ONLY hope at this point.

    Thanks Mike, i'm going to look into that fitting if I have to I'm going to go all compression fittings because I'm not going to have it all half assed looking with half compression and half Russell fittings.....sucks, but oh well.

    Time constraints demand whatever is available. 2 days til my Autozone order is delivered.....I'm hoping they are the right ones.....$200 total for fuel fittings and lines. :confused:

    You should try a parts dealer that buys from Keystone Automotive.

    I have a local guy (in NH) that I deal with, they are a car detailing shop that sells parts (through Keystone), fills nos bottles and has a chick behind the counter with a huge rack :D

    He usually works Saturday morning, his name is Todd, if not then you can call him on Monday.

    Mike,
    I would use silver solder vs the brazed joint.
    just my two cents.
