Almost all of these fitting are a compression fitting. You may have to go to a plumbimg,heating, and A.C.parts supply store to buy the specific fitting you need but most have threaded male fitting with the compression ferrule attached in one fitting. Be careful when you start threads and finish tightening as the fitting are brass and the gas valve body is aluminium. Danger of cross threading or stripping threads if you over tighten. It is not mandatory to use pipe thread sealer on these fitting but I normally will to make it easier to get a good leak free seal without over tightening. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Can't get any gas to polit light


Are you getting gas to gas valve? if so then pull supply gas line off the gas valve and look in the end of the gas valve there is a screen in it that catches trash make sure its not stopped up. If clear then pull the pilot supply tube from the valve and press knob if you don't get gas out of valve pilot supply hole the replace valve. if gas is coming out of pilot supply hole the check pilot supply tube some times when heater sets up over summer tube stops up at end of tube has a small orifice you will need to open the hole up with a sewing neddle.

Have a dayton 3F405D propane greenhouse heater don't know where to light the pilot light.


Find where the gas line connects to the gas valve on the back of the heater, from the gas valve, follow a small aluminum tube going into the back of the heater. There may be a removable door to access the pilot assembly. If there is no aluminum tube, the unit has electronic ignition and no pilot lite. Turn the gas knob to off, then to pilot. Hold the gas valve in and with a long match or gas grill lighter, light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 30 seconds. After that, release the knob and check to make sure the pilot stays lit. If so, rotate the knob to ON. The thermostat will kick the burners on.

Purge hotwater heater gas line of air


Hi, What you have to do here, is to take the flex line loose at the flare connection at the hot water control after shutting off the valve 1st. When this is done, open the valve for a few seconds to purge the line of any air that may have been trapped. Re- connect the line and turn the knob to pilot and hold it down until you can smell the gas or hear it. Wait a few minutes and hold it down again and you should have no problems lighting it. If it continues not to light, there may be something in the pilot line at the end of it, and you may have to remove the assembly to clean it out. Very easy to do. Just remove the gas flex at the control, and maybe the nipple that the flex screwed to. The control, pilot and thermocouple will all slide out together along with the burner. If there is a spider web inside donot blow it as it will not blow out. You will need to run a peice of a metal coat hanger or stiff wire through it. Replace it in reverse of taking it out. You will have to purge the air out all over again. Please keep me posted as I know you can do this. I have confidence in you.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

I have an older monterey wall heater that is gas that wont seem to light. I cant even get the gas to start from the pilot can you help me?


You could have a plugged pilot line. You will need to get to the gas valve and shut the gas supply off. Once you did that, unscrew the pilot line that supplies gas to the pilot assembly. You can then turn on the gas supply and rotate the pilot knob to the pilot setting. Depress the knob into the gas valve. You should be able to smell and hear the gas come out of the hole where you unscrewed the pilot line. Don't do this with a cigarette in your face. Once you verify you have gas, release the knob and shut off the gas supply. Take a can of air and blow thru the pilot tube, first from the pilot assembly in the heater then from the open end of the pipe. Replace the pilot tube making sure you don't cross thread the fitting. Tighten well. Again turn on the gas supply, spray or rub some soapy water on the fitting you tightened, depress the knob and hold it. The soap will bubble up if there is a leak. Fix it. Now light the pilot.

Can't get the gas valve to release fuel when trying to light the pilot. took apart the line and there is gas, but the valve won't release when I press the plunger in. coleman trailer furnace was turned off...


Possible bad gas valve. When a gas valve fails it fails in the closed position. If you cannot get gas out of the pilot light chances are gas valve is bad. Call a service tech for freee estimate. Rus

How to remove the egr valve on a 1993 mercury grand marquis


Jack up the passengers side of the car, get a 1 1/16" wrench break loose the fitting to the manifold, hold a 24 mm wrench on the fitting to the manifold, loosen the flare nut on the tube. Then using a 10 mm socket, about 2 inches long, loosen the two nuts under the EGR valve, then take the both out, remove the vacuum hose to the top of the EGR valve, and the sensing line from the small tube. then completely remove the flare nut from the orifice fitting on the manifold. BE CAREFUL with the tube, do not bend it or break it, you may find PB blaster useful the night before on a cold engine loosen these fittings. Once the EGR valve is out, remove the orifice out of the manifold, remove the tube from the EGR valve, again be careful, mark the tube to EGR position before pulling this off, because the top fitting to EGR needs tightened before you put it back in, it will make the lower fitting difficult if you do not line it up right, dry fitting from under the car is helpful, mark it, and then tighten the top. Clean out the tube, be careful not to bend the little tube, either inside or outside the larger tube, it sticks out inside. Clean the orifice, clean the manifold face carefully not to score it, check for blockage there too. Apply anti-seize to the orifice, put it back in the manifold, then apply anti-seize to the bolts for the EGR valve, and the flare nuts both ends. Apply some silicon to the EGR valve face, just enough to hold the gasket in place, put the new gasket on, start the bolts two turns in the gasket, it will hold them in place, then start them in the manifold, then start the lower flare fitting to orifice, tighten the top bolts, and then the flare nut, connect the vacuum line, connect the sensing line. I just recently did this process, it works, if have other EGR issues, the valve is the easiest.

Crack in 1996 cherokee fuel line from gas tank. how do you replace it


find out what size the fuel line is then purchase two union fittings for that size, aquire a tubing flare tool in order to flare the ends of the 1 ft. length of tubing you will need to buy for the repair,cut out the damaged length with a tubing cutter making sure you have a clean oil drain pan handy because the gas may continue to flow from tank after the breach of the line,make sure there is an almost empty tank before attempting this job if possible, then take the nut and slide it over the cars cut fuel line that is to be repaired then choose the appropriate hole size on the flaring tool clamp it over the fuel line with about an 1/8 of an inch sticking out, then apply the flare making certain the nut is slid over the fuel line before flaring and it is facing the correct direction, after flaring remove the flaring tool and repeat as neccessary on the replacement section of tubing and on the other side of the fuel line to be repaired tighten up unions with two line wrenches at the same time and check for leaks.

My rear wheel brakeline on durango 1998 blew


Depends on your mechanic ablilites. Steel brake line is basically 0.188 inch diameter line, and the metric 6mm line dia is very closely same.
Dodge uses ISO bubble flare , and not the American standard double flare at the end of the steel tube line. This ISO bubble flare on the steel line then fits into its mate female end which is the rubber hose connector end.
So, easiest way to get rid of the ISO bubble flare and change to American double flare end is:
Some automotive stores such as Parts Plus Auto Stores carry the brass brakeline adapter which has one end being the male end that fits nicely into the rubber hose with its ISO bubble female fitting, while the other end of the brass line adapter is the female end which has the double flare so you can then insert the steel line replacement with standard double flare into this end of the adapter.
Steel line , bungy brake line or equivalent is fine, and has the brake line nuts already on it, and is flared for you too. If you want to stay with ISO bubble line fittings you can get that in bungy brake line lengths too but it is less common for some stores to carry, and that is why the conversion brake line fitting adapter mentioned is so easy a way to change from ISO bubble flare to a double flare for easier use of all steel line being standard American double flared brake line. The brake lines come in straight lengths, 2ft 4ft, and 6ft, so you can use them to fit your necessary total length by connecting them with tubing couplers which the steel tube lines brake line nut gets threaded into.
My same year Durango had its rear line blow thru last year, due to the rusting of the steel brake line. I just got done last week, doing a entire steel line replacement myself. It was a medium sized effort for sure. You should check the other lines for the entire brake system to see if you need to replace more than just that section which failed for you, as my lines showed heavy corrosion at many other locations in the brake line system.
It is easy to double flare brake line tubing , and Sears sells its craftsman brand of brake line double flare tool kit for that purpose at about 60 bucks if I recall it right.
One thing you should do when doing your own double flaring, is to use a dial caliper to measure the diameter of the flare at its widest flared end, to insure you are within the required diameter of flare to insure proper sealing when you tighten down the tube flare nuts. I recall the flare diameter is supposed to be 0.272 inches , plus or minus 0.006 inches ( so range of dial caliper measuring of that formed flare should be between 0.266 inch and 0.278 inch) to insure the right diameter of flare for good sealing.
You can also get steel galvanized tubing line in coils of 20ft and more, with a bunch of brake line nuts ( all this is standard american brake line nuts, for double flared line fitting) from Inline Tube company; www.inlinetube.com.
Check out the great tech info from FEDHILL website, www.fedhillusa.com
Good luck, I did it so you can do it and feel satisfied and safe for the family with solid and sound steel line that is much better than chancing an accident via leaving the rusted line in place.
