EM Part info needed.

Trying to find part numbers of the elbow that comes out of a '63 Spyder turbocharger. Couldn't find the part at Clark's and when I looked at yhe parts manual, I find it listed in the parts breakdown but there is no info on it. Part 8.963 in the part manual.

It is the 90 degree pipe fitting from bottom of bearing housing and the oil drain tube to head attaches to it. Normally it is not removed from center section during rebuild.

So question is: is yours missing or just curious as to the part?

That elbow is cross threaded and leaks oil now. I am trying to figure out if I can get my hands on one or if I will have to try to fix the threads.

The elbow is a standard brass NPT fitting. I bought one at the hardware store that is virtually identical to the original. You can also get the corresponding brass compression sleeve and threaded ring that also looks virtually identical. I can't remember the size.

Are the damaged threads on the bearing housing, the elbow/fitting, or the drain tube? I have extras of all of them.

The threads are damaged in the elbow where the compression nut for the drain hose attaches. I will look at my local hardware store for the elbow.
Thanks everyone,

Steve and I generally agree on most everything and I am not questioning his methods but I always remove the fitting, clean the threads on the fitting and in the center section then re-seal the threads. I have had to replace a few for damaged ferrule fitting ends.

Hi Ken: I always look over the threads on outlet side but if good I leave the fitting in place. You are correct that some of the fine threads can be ruined. As always thanks for your comments, it is a good reminder.

So after pulling the elbow out of the turbocharger and a trip to the hardware store, it is determined to be a 1/2" Tube OD, 1/2" Male Pipe Size elbow that is needed. For future reference if anyone reads this.
