    Need size for odd ball autopilot cell manifold

    So I was in the process of replacing my tri sensor on my autopilot manifold. I dropped the manifold just right and it broke at the elbow. I built a replacement with a male end of a 1 1/2" union. It did not fit. The union size was too large. Obviously, the union fitting that the cell female end thread onto is not a standard size. What size union do I need?

    Unfortunately you have to get it from Autopilot.

    Yeah, some manufacturers use proprietary thread sizes among other things, so you have no choice but to buy another one by that same manufacturer.

    I was able to recover and reuse the fitting using this method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfezjNDNxNo

    I had to repeat a few times, but it came right apart, just like in the video.
