    I have an 11 X 14 Zone VI archival washer which has lost its inlet and outlet elbows. The threaded part on the inlet is 3/8" and the dischage threaded part is 1". Can anyone tell me what size the original hose barb was on these fittings. I guess the other question might be, "Does it really matter." Thank you, Bill Barber

    Bill,

    I just measured the fittings on my washer. The inlet hose barb is 3/8" and the outlet barb is 1". It really doesn't matter though, as long as they are large enough to allow sufficient flow in and out.

    Allen, thank you for your reply. Finding a nylon 1" elbow with a 1" barb is difficult to say the least. The 3/8" is a little easier, if you need 10 of them. Anyone have any specific ideas about "getting places?" Bill Barber
