CAPTN STEVE, I have the same set up as Mikek on my GB 42 and mine is not bastardize your right on its a fitting to screw on and point the other end to the way you need it to point, and you are correct about the pipe size.

Mike,

Below is the link for the 90 degree TPC elbow with straight thread available at defender, they come in two pieces the nut and the elbow, the only issue i see is that they dont show 1 3/8 but would give them a call as stated earlier 1 3/8 was an older commonly used size by Groco and they may have or link to?



Groco TPC-Series 90¬į Tail Piece

Cheers Steve

if measured 1 3/8" at threads, probably 1" NPT.

In the not too clear picture shown, the hose appears to be pinched in where it fastens to the elbow.
Could that be an 1 1/2" hose clamped to a 1 3/8" or 1 1/4" elbow?
OP hasn't said what is wrong with the elbow, does it leak, or is it known to be the wrong size?

Are we over looking something? Looking at the hose why are you trying to install a flow restricting 90 degree elbow?

A few minutes with some Brasso and an old toothbrush and that strainer will be as good as new!

You can't judge a book by its cover.
While the strainer does look dilapidated, its function is likely as good as it ever was.
If the elbow is leaking from the threads, pull it off, clean it up, reinstall it with a generous slathering of Rector Seal on the threads.
Is it leaking at the barb?
Maybe that hose is the bastard?
Does the hose go to the raw water pump?
What does the other end of it look like?

Bilge area. The wires would never pass survey. The whole area needs cleaning and up date.

Just went through a similar issue with my generator raw water hose. Onan lists 1" as the size, but the hull valve was a 1 1/8" barb. Have no idea how the last fool was able to get that to fit? So, I replaced the elbow. Also found copper pipe used to splice two pieces of hose.

I think what you have is a 1" strainer. The pipe size you are measuring, 1-3/8", is very close to the OD of 1" pipe.
1-3/8" = 1.375"
1" pipe OD = 1.315

If the ID of your hose is 1-1/8" then you need a Groco FFC-1125.
This is an elbow with 1" male pipe thread on one end and is sized for 1-1/8" hose id on the other.

Check the ID of the hose, 1-1/8 sounds strange to me.

Just an example.
Check out Wonderhose. It is available in many different I.D.s including 1-1/8".
In my raw water system I use 1-7/8" I.D.

RUBCO Marine and Industrial Hose> Products

Didn't look to see if it is suitable for coolant use though. You will have to ask about A/f and the temperature. They list 240oF as max so be sure.

Why? Because the bronze has a patina and looks bad? I have 4 of these and another slightly smaller SVS750. What I learned is that Groco has all the parts to rebuild these...except for the rubber plug in the attached seacock. That is the key to these. If that is still good then give it a light sanding, lube it up and off you go. The gasket rebuild kits are $25 and a new wingnut for one was $17. That's what I am doing and glad I am as these are $500 or so apiece. I guess I could shine them up and put on a coat of clear lacquer to help with the pretty for a while. Seems like the patina can be a good indicator thatsomething is leaking even if only slightly. I think lacquer would prevent that. My theory at least!

In my case it was the plywood backing plates that were soggy and leaking that drove my decision to replace all 13 of the underwater through hulls and seacocks. When I got them apart, the through hulls and seacocks had different threads and some were only connected by a few threads. Also, the only things holding the seacocks in place weíre the though hull threads and some mastic; no through hull bolts. The rubber plug seacocks were probably recoverable, but I couldn't rationalize going back with 30-year-old hardware once I had them out.

Given all that I would agree. I am pulling boat next week and am looking closely at the same situation. I guess I am lucky, or at least think I am at this point, as my backing plates seem to be rock solid. With the exception of one seacock/strainer which has other issues. If I do have to go back to square one and put in new backing plates I will most likely pop for all new strainers and seacocks. I think I am lucky as my boat spent 26 of its 30 years being pulled and on the hard for 8-9 months a year up north. That helped it age gracefully and without some of the hard use issues I saw on boats kept in more temperate climates i.e South Florida. Huge difference all around.
