I got a different adapter to try, it looks almost just like the Brocock adapter. And it fits the Condor's quick fill nipple perfectly. But threads look maybe 'tighter' or closer together and a bit longer?

But it won't thread into the hose as far or easily as the Brocock adapter does? I was told it fits into Hill Pumps no problem...Just not mine :x

Different adapter on the left and Brocock adapter on the right...

One is probably 1/8 npt and the other is 1/8 bsp.

Left side is NPT notice the slight taper in the thread? Your right hand is BSPP see how straight the thread pitch is. Thats your difference. They both hold the same safe operating pressure of 5000psi. But they are different.

It looks like the left is 1/8" NPT - (National Pipe Thread Taper) and the right is 1/8" BSPP - (British Standard Pipe Parallel).

I would also assume Brocock uses BSP threads, I am guessing the adapter on the right threads into the female threads on your hill pump just fine?

EDIT: X2 Whitewolf, got up for a drink mid-post :lol:

It says right on their website "1/8" BSP connector", how could they not know what it is? :|

If SSSO doesn't come through I probably have one! I ordered four times From BestFittings.UK in the last two months! Always kept forgetting something, now I have everything! LOL!

You aren't using vice grips on those fittings are you? PLEASE by some proper combination wrenches!

X2 a small investment in tools will pay for itself in lack of headaches and damaged parts very quickly

Here are a couple thing to watch at CT, they always go on sale...

I got this 26pc wrench set for $34 :shock:
http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/maste ... 8500p.html

This 200pc screwdriver kit for $40 is on sale right now, I strongly suggest this to anyone in need of tools, there is a lot of stuff in there, for the price you will not a find better deal, simple as that. Also keep in mind the 100pc kit is normally $130 :shock: :shock: If I didnt already own one I would be driving there right now :lol:
