What is this part called and where can i get it?

Hi guys, while reassembling my carb after taking it apart to clean i broke one of the brass fuel inlet nipples, picture is attached. It is off a a TigerShark size 40, some random out of business Chinese company. Question, where can i get one of these, and what is it actually called? Would a hobby shop have this part? Maybe nappa auto parts? I have no idea

Thanks a ton,
-Nick

More than likely one of the metric sized fuel inlet fittings for OS, Evolution, ASP, and Enya ought to fit. Try your local LHS, they should have something.

This is a fuel inlet nipple of the carb.Most common part of carbs.Any brand of carb fuel inlet should be fit.

The nipples usually have a tapered thread (like a pipe thread or a self tapping screw). As said they are pretty common. People who sell Chinese engines are apt to have them. I had to replace one on a Tower Hobbies engine a while back. So they are abundant.

These are common. I agree that It's going to be a metric size and virtually all of them use the same size nipple.

I'm fairly certain only Saito uses taper thread fuel nipples.
