Still plugging away at my 67 A65 project, I am looking for an oil feed tube for the cylinder head. The original one broke, and I made it much much worse trying to save it. I have the fittings that attach to the head, but not the tube itself, and, most importantly, the cone-shaped bit at the end that fits into the fitting. I tried fabbing one out of 3/8" brake line and a compression ring but the ring is just a hair too small and wants to come through the nut. I am going to try 1/4" copper tubing next, unless I can find the proper bits. Anyone have, or know where I can get one? Thanks as always, Dave

I was able to source those bits. I don't remember where, but I usually call British Cycle Supply first for stuff like that.

3/16" copper tubing and a flaring tool will work out fine. Alternatively you can drill out a bolt that fits (5/16 BSF?), and brace them together.

Regards

Most of the usual suspects (supply houses) in the US will carry the tube with the brazed on ferrule #68-0927 and ferrule tube nut (if needed) #29-2089.

I think the poster is asking for the length of pipe which screws onto this.

SRM sell these, but I can't see no reason why any of your local vendors can't get hold of this part.

Vdog, are you aware that British Cycle Supply, although based in Nova Scotia, has a warehouse in New Jersey? For you that means one-day service, if the parts are in stock in Jersey. Give 'em a call.

The warehouse is in Hackensack NJ.
If you call the Sales Office in Canada at 9.00 a.m. you can pick it up at Hackensack at about 2 p.m.
Same day service and no shipping costs.
It works--I live about 4 miles from the warehouse and use their service frequently.

I do in fact need the tube, not the fitting shown above. Presently I have it rigged with a length of 1/4" copper tubing and a ferrule, but it seems a bit precarious since the tubing is too big to insert too far into the fitting so the ferrule is right at the end of the tubing. Not sure how secure it is. Seems like it might be OK for a little while, but I don't trust it. Couldn't find my flaring tool, so it's just sitting on the end.
I have spoken to Wayne at BCS a number of times over the years, and since they're in Jerz, I usually get my parts in a day or two. Didn't see this bit on their website, so I guess I'll make a list and give them a call. Thanks again, to all.

Someone made some silver coated copper or brass ones of those, it looked like steel pipe and perfect till it broke. Its pretty obvious when it breaks because of the large quantity of oil it pumps all over the motor. So if you get a new piece make sure it's steel. Possibly you could use a piece of steel pipe with brass olive and nut. A section of an old diesel injector pipe might work if its the right size. When mine broke I was a long way from home and I just took the broken bit off and jammed the hose over the threaded section and put a hose clamp on.
