Lehman 120 fuel inlet question

Can anyone tell me what the size fitting is that goes into the engine mounted filter assembly? I swapped my mechanical FP out for an electric. I thought I had the correct fittings installed for the 3/8 inch rubber fuel line, but I have a slight leak. The only locally sourced parts I could find needed an added converter to get to 3/8 inch. I'd like to find a one-piece fitting t hat screws directly into the filter housing and comes out with a 3/8 nipple. Is it a flared fitting (believe it is)? Use sealer, or not?


Thanks!

Take the bits to an hydraulic shop and get a line made up.

Hi
Did the same on my FL120, used an adapter still working well years later. Used permatex for fuel fittings available at auto parts stores.

Bleeding the system is such a no brainer now!
