    Just learned that Tetra is NO LONGER suppling the LARGE 90 degree fitting for tuned pipe pressure supply.

    This was my fitting of choice.

    Anyone have a good replacement for this large 90 degree configuration?

    Hi Tom
    I’ve been using the smaller Tetra on the 21 size engines with no issues, I’d assume it would be okay for 12’s as well. For the larger engines I’ve seen only straight types available, I’m thinking I got some from K&B, what ever they’re called now.

    Were these discontinued fittings self tapping or did they require a nut inside the pipe?

    Yes Richard, the large Tetra 90 degree fittings had a flange on inside and secured with a nut on the outside.

    I have checked with all known suppliers of this product and they are all gone. Including John Otto and Central Hobbies (airplane guys).

    I am looking into product listed below at present time for a replacement

    https://www.mecoa.biz/shopexd.asp?id=2143

    I wanted the large fitting for .67 and above motors.
