do you know the diameter of the center hole in the fitting ? is there any old pipework left from original pipework ?

What size is the male threads Im guessing would be 1/4 as that is what the fuel pickup is on the A cant see why it would need to be bigger ,

Abes, fuel fittings are usually BSP thread

a chart showing sizes can be downloaded here

by clicking on "Download our guide to BSP thread sizes"

you can measure your male fittings and get a BSP size from the chart.

a range of pipe and fittings are available here
