Well like a dumb*ss I went and stripped the threads out of the end of the brass block where the oil feed line for the turbo goes.
Any suggestions?

Thanks Steve I felt so retarded that the block almost made it into orbit.

it happens to all of us....

I screwed up the beginning of the threads in one of the engine mount holes twice on my T when putting a new poly mount on recently....retapped the start of threads twice...It was one of my really spastic weeks...don't know why it was such a problem.

That fitting shouldn't be tough.You could try an automotive parts supply or hydraulic supply store.
