Looking for an inverted oil sump fitting with 45 degree swivel for my O-360. Also need 2 aluminum sump bosses.

You can buy an AN 910 coupling and saw it in half. You now have two female pipe thread boses.

Thanks for the suggestion Tom! I'm assuming they would be 1/2" fitting?

1/2” pipe to an-10 fitting for oil lines. I use -8 for oil cooler and -10 for inverted system. At least that’s what we used on my sons Acrosport 2

-10 for the lines going to and from the firewall ball valve is correct. The early S-2A's used -8 and it was found to be inadequate. Replaced with -10's on all ships. That plumbing is on the suction side of the oil pump.

Best of luck,

Wes
