    Looking for a few of the 1/4-32" fittings people have been using to flush engines with a starter. Who, if anyone, is selling them?

    Thanks

    Never bought one, always made my own. Knock out the center and solder in a brass tub. I have about 20 years on mine and works great

    Yes Rossi is a quick way if you don't have tools to solder. Also if you can get a small gatorade bottle put a blue shop towel inside and run your exhaust hose into it so you won't spray oil all around. This works perfect. You can also purchase connectors to put in the top of the cap like I did so you can just hook your tube up to the two connectors. Also make sure your tubes are strapped down on the fittings so they don't blow off

    For the last several years we have flushed with glow plug in place. This pressurized approach does a good job of flush through bearings also. However we soon do full tear downs after race weekends also. Flushing is just interim.
