Hey guys,

I want to convert my bleeder valve on my thermostat housing/neck to the nipple type i've seen pictures of on this forum:

http://www.ls1lt1.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25695

what kind of nipple/valve is that? size of thread, etc. I'm gonna pick one up at the hardware store today, just wanted to know so i could swap out the one i got tonight...

thanks!

wow, hit 3 hardware stores and a speed shop -- none of them had anything that could fit that description or picture. its just a little valve with a nipple isn't it?

its 1/8 NPT, that can't be that difficult to find!

a 1/8 NPT bleeder valve... outrageous that they are that difficult to find.

I built a still back in college and we used twist valves for the petcock, and every plumbing store in the area seemed to carry them.

Looks like BigBlackSS is gonna have to save me now :p
