High pressure pump thread

Post by reliant » Wed Apr 02, 2014 2:08 pm

hello

We are currently trying to use a high pressure pump from a BX to power a pedal-hydraulic reliant robin.

Does anyone know the thread used for the high pressure connection?

Thanks

Matt

Delboy would assign that pedalling task to Rodney. :wink:

Curious project, I'm sure someone will be along soon to give you the answer. :)

It's M12 X 1.25, but we need photos!

EDIT - for future reference the other thread sizes are:
3.5 mm pipe = M8 X 1.25
4.5 mm pipe = M9 X 1.25
