I'm trying to replace a gas stove in a house from 30+ years ago.
We have the stove, and now are struggling with trying to connect it.
I tried to replace the old flex hose with a new stainless steel hose,
but the connector diameters are off by 1/16" - even with adapters.
The sizes of the connectors are confusing to me,
because the "name" is different vs the actual measured diameter.
ie - the 1/2" naming is actually measured as 3/4" diameter ???
Here is what I am seeing and measuring as far as real diameters.....
The existing shutoff value with a male thread -
that used to be connected to old flex hose
OD --> 13/16" (3/4" + 1/16")
The old flex hose - female connectors both ends
ID --> 13/16" (3/4" + 1/16")
New stainless steel flex hose
ID --> 7/8" (14/16")
New screw-in male to male adapters
OD --> 3/4" (12/16") <----> 7/8" (14/16")
Suggestions on how to resolve this short term ?
Why or where did my 13/16" for the pipe and old stove come from ??
I will be calling (plumber ??, heat/cooling ??, appliance ??)
Who's best qual to mess with the black pipe connector ?
to rework the end of the black pipe and install a new shutoff
with the current threading to match the avail adapters.
tnx - Phil -
