Re: Mysterious part

Refrigerant line caps ? Like you might find on a compressor or or evaporator in an icebox conversion kit.

I want to think the male end has that fat screwdriver cut in it because its meant to a part that is adjustable easily with a coin perhaps

This is what I am talking about:



When the connection is undone, before installation, each side is covered.
They are shiny brass, too good for a pack-rat to toss.
The owner of my old boat is probably wondering what the set I left him are

+2

for precharged refrigerant tubing so the gas does not escape

the cap fits the male part of the union,the oring fits the female union.

surplus junk once the pipe is joined

Re: Mysterious part

I think what atoll is hinting at is that someone thought " these are too good to throw away; they might come in handy some time."

But 3/4 thread seems AWFULLY BIG.... But possibly on an older system with a larger low pressure line??? Much to big for a diesel heater feed pipe too... LP?

Re: Mysterious part

I think when I sell my boat, I'm going to leave a few aircraft parts hidden in lockers, maybe a compressor blade or two?
Ought to drive the new owner nuts, you think?
