Could someone tell me what the external thread is on the right angle elbow that comes out of the gas tank on an MGA? Is it BSP (likely), if so what size and is it a tapered thread?
Thanks,

Is it possible it's 3/8" BSP. Seems a bit big for 1/4"?

If it's BSP Wittworth that's very close to 1/2", Just under.
