On the oil relocation kit, I need to know the size of the fitting that is in the aluminum piece that is bolted to the block in place of the oil filter. I've isolated a leak there and I'm going to replace it tomorrow. I will be taking the fitting with me to get a new one, I'd just like some numbers so I can verify it and not be clueless.

Thanks!
Christian

Ling uses a motocraft FL-1A oil filter (it's what i keep in stock).
and my filter book shows the tread to be 3/4-16 UNF-2B
but i have no idea what the UNF-2B stand for

Ling = 84SE-350-N2O-Poly-Mr.Mike seats-Sequential turn signals-short shifter
Julia C = 85GT stock (mostly)

The 90* oil fitting is a 1/2" NPT male fitting on one end & a 1/2" Male flare fitting on the other end.
