Does anyone know of a source for shutoff valves, that have

a longer neck between the thread, and valve body?

I keep running into the problem of these being too short, when

the tank sits on a base, and by the time you put a foam cushion

inbetween tank and base, it just doesn't work.

If the tank is clean inside, how about a brass coupling and short nipple?

That was my first thought too, not sure if they are available longer, that is a standard 1/8 inch pipe thread isnt it?

The couplings are still available at my local Ace.  Lowes used to have them, but I haven't gotten anything like that there for awhile.

My thought also. I think Lowes or an Air Compressor parts store will have 1/8 pipe connectors. That way you can put the valve whererever you want. Will, I may have some in my massive supply of junk plumbing parts if you can't find one-Lee

anywhere that sells a good selection of brass plumbing fittings has them. I got mine at Menards, but Lowes,Home Depot, etc. have them too.

Where do you get one that is in the picture?  I checked with Ford and they didn't have them anymore.

 

Thanks

When all else fails, try a Fluid Power Distributor who deals in industrial pneumatic valves cylinder etc. They will usually carry

a line of fittings, including barbed or push-lock connectors etc. You'll have to check compatibility of course, but your choices

will be vast.
