    I had the valves replaced on my B&S engine.

    While reassembling everything I noticed that I had stripped the male nipple which connects to the high pressure metal tubing.

    I'm glad I noticed this before I started splitting today.

    I don't know what this part is called or where I can purchase a replacement from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Not sure what you call it but take it to any hydraulic shop, they should have it. It is a very common part like a pipe thread by 37 or 45 degree.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I found a replacement; it's a high pressure, carbon steel Male JIC x Male BSPP (what ever the hell that means) 1/2" to 3/4".

    $8.62 out the door.

    BSPT (I think that's what you meant) = British Standard Pipe Thread

    OH yeah forgot to say the British pipe/ NPT thing, they are different and will cause fits if you mix em up. Thankfully I am near a good hydraulic shop, they catch my stupidity all the time....

    If I remember right the thread angle is different between BSPT and NPT. I know the actual shape of the thread is different as well. BSPT is easily identified by it's rounded thread shape as opposed to the sharp peaks of NPT.
