What is the difference between these two types of oil tank bushings and why
would one be better than the other. I called several suppliers and they did
not know which I found to be a bit strange.

I guess I should have know that I would not get any usefull information from
you. Just for the record, one of the holes is for the suction line and the
other is for the return line. I just wondered if anyone here knew the
difference between the two and what applications that they would be used
Ya know Smitty, your the Idiot. I don't post a lot, only when I have a
legitimate question. You on the other hand seem to answer every post with
some bullshit answer that has nothing to do with any of the many OP's
questions you respond to. No it is not a research project. I am removing a
buried tank and replacing it. I just want to know in what situation you
would use one and what situation you would use another. I am sure either
will work for my application. I was just hoping that someone here might know
this answer. Obviously, it isn't you, because if you re-read the OP you will
discover that I also asked why one would be better than the other.
FYI if anyone wants to know, the difference is that the bottom of the taps
on the bushings are threaded. The three way has one tap threaded and the
four way has both bottom tapped. This is so that you can put a guide pipe on
the bottom of the bushing for the tubing to slide through to guide them
inside the tank,
Well I know what the word tapped means, I just wanted to know why they would
sell one tapped and one not. Still, no one including the people who sell
them or manufacture them, can tell me why or in what situation one would be
better to use than the other.
