What is the size of this elbow, or what thread dimension should I be looking for? Gravity drain without control sucks. Thanks!

Howdy,
I believe its 3/4"

NSN 4730-00-940-0947 part# MS24519-7 ELBOW,PIPE TO HOSE

You just need a 3/4" pipe to hose barb elbow. The hose is listed being 18 inches. I just installed a 3 ft piece and then cut it to where I wanted. So, the length would drop right into a 5 gal bucket.

I looked that up on another site, and came up with this

Nominal Inside Diameter Hose Accommodated (CWDW):
0.375 inches 2nd end
Nominal Pipe Size Accommodated (AAAR):
0.250 inches 1st end
Nominal Thread Size (CQJX):
0.250 inches 1st end

Which a 3/8 NPT would have an OD of about .675 (3/8 ID). I bought two straight adapters at NAPA on my way home earlier... gonna try out the 3/8 and see if she works (and will report back).

Howdy,

The trailer power units package came with a pipe to hose elbow for the purpose of draining oil. A generator skid can use this method too. Just a staright 3/4 pipe to hose barb piece works good to not have oil dribling along the side.
