Can anyone with access to one, sell me a gas meter swivel? I need the
outlet side. The meter is an American Meter Company, Model: AC-250 -
this is a garden variety residential gas meter, as used throughout the
The "meter swivel" pipe I need has about a three inch offset (makes
two 90 deg bends) with one end a male 3/4" NPT thread and the other
has a shoulder flange to fit into the meter.
I know I can get this part from the local gas company, but I don't
want them coming over, just yet.

Ah, yes, yes, thank you very much indeed! "Legitimate" is the key word

Say, Stephy, you wouldn't happen to have a spare meter swivel lying
around? Would you? C'mon, I know you have one. Sell it to me. Name

signed and notarized liability waiver.
Contact me off the NG to arrange for this illicit transaction.
Thanks a ton!
