2004 Grady 330:
The sink in the head, had a leak on the hot water fitting. Of course trying to fix it by tightening it, the entire fitting stripped and came off.

Does anyone have a source for this fitting, everything I found has Tapered pipe threads, the threads on the sink faucet is 3/8" NPS (Straight.)

Thanks

Edit: The picture is incorrect where it says 1/2" NPS, the fitting is actually 3/8" NPS.

I would think that a tapered female fitting when screwed on a straight fitting would seal as long as sufficient tape or sealant is used. Easy to try.
A second approach would be to use a 3/8 compression to 1/2 NPT flexible line ( normally used on faucets). On the NPT side, use a female to barbed plastic fitting

Thanks, I did find a brass tapered fitting at home Depot. I was only able to get about 2 turns, I'll keep looking for a straight fitting, I may try the tapered if I can't find anything. Thanks

Maybe check with GW for their source or try a local plumbing supply shop. I'm guessing they could give you ideas.

I had to replace some as well. OEM for GW was Scandvik. I bought some extras and other parts like cockpit sprayer. They sell replacement parts to public, but others new fixtures go thru their dealers.

You may have luck at Home Depot. Some of the braded hoses have flat washers like a garden hose in them that will seal to the end of the faucet. From there you have to figure out the other end.
