Talking 32 fuel gauge connection

Hi guys

Wonder if you can help. Bought a fuel gauge line with fittings from Bob Drake (I think) - run the line and made tank connection and now 6 months later went to make the gauge connection and cant find the 'nut or olive'...

Any ideas where if could buy just 1 nut and 1 olive.. Have into several
engineering supply shops and they cant even agree on what I should ask for.

Any ways here a picture of the beast I'm after..
Many thanks Bruce

Take the gauge to Napa and see if a tubing nut will fit or look up Royal Brass, they have almost any brass fitting made. G.M.

For 28 bucks, I'd just buy another kit from Drake and be done with it. The time/gas you spend fooling around looking for one elsewhere isn't worth it. Plus, even if you found something, you might end up with a sloppy fit on the compression fitting because the tube diameter might not be perfect for the fitting.
