Default Easy Carb Questions

What is the name of the brass piece that goes in the carb where the fuel line attaches? My Tillitson doesn't have one and the one from my Marvel doesn't fit it. I want to swap out carbs while I send my Marvel off to be professionally rebuilt.

The Tillitson shouldn't need one, the fuel line should screw right into the Tilly.

My Tillotson carb. Just the regular gas line fitting with flared line.

It's a compression fitting. The "sleeve" is on the fuel line, about 1/8" from the end where it attaches to the Zenith Carb.

Some of the replacement carbs used a adapter. 1/8 pipe threads into the carb and 1/2 -20 straight threads for the fuel line.
