Re: water inlet elbow

Lowe's and get a 3/8 npt x 5/8 barb fitting to replace this with? only difference I could see is the Lowe's fitting wouldn't have the little pipe going into the water passage. I had a 289 in a pick up I use to have that somebody used pipe fittings in, it worked OK, just looked ugly. But there must ...
