HiDHo,

Looks like Derale is the way to go. Griffen's is my local supplier, and they have been very helpful in the past. I got my last oil filter from them at 1/2 the cost, so they should be able to fit the nipple and seal ring.

Thanks again for bringing this back to my attention as it had slipped down the list recently.

Do exactly the same thing with 1/4"x12" plastic rod. The clog is always in the restriction under the ball valve.........

Print West Marine on the side of the plastic rod and you can sell it for at least $12.99 as a Vacuflush Clog Clearing Tool.

Greetings,
Speaking of WM...I bought some heavy duty heat shrink tubing, the kind you use on large battery cables (about 1" or so ID) and put them on the ends of my storm lines. Sort of a quick and dirty poor man's whipping. Just in case the melted ends ever let go, it's a back up.
