No, the fabco's threads are #10-32. That fitting has 1/8 NPT.

Thanks for all the info guys.

Gram. I found two different local hobby shops that had two fittings each. One of the guys told me "a bunch of you aquarium guys have been buying these lately". So, apparently we are developing a reputation.

Left C. Turns out the closest Clippard dealer to me is 2hr away. Good to know for the future though. And I have certainly learned my lesson about asking for extra charges up front.

No, they are not the same. #10 refers to the diameter of the treaded end and 32 refers to the number of threads per inch. It's almost half the diameter of 5/16"

If you don't go the clippard route as Left C suggested, give some local hobby shops that deal in R/C at try. If nothing else, they should be able to order them in for you.

All of them

The 10-32/barb fitting is used in fuel lines I think, which they run into their little model airplanes or cars.

Yeah, BARB size.
The barb is what the air line slides onto.
