I'm trying to hook up my ARB's to my new york compressor but it seems the solenoids for the ARBs are metric? Any suggestions? the rest of my stuff is all 3/8

They a fawked! Part of them is NPT and part of them is Brittish pipe thread. I have used 3/16 swagelok fittings and got them to work but yes the hose is metric.

Or go to a fitting shop like Parker and they have adapter fittings (all kinds of them).

But I thought I heard that 1/8 NPT ...WILL.. fit in the 1/8 BPT solenoid ports.

As far as the axle end, 3/16" fittings will fit (which are actual 3/8-24).

1/8 NPT can be FORCED into 1/8BPT, but it is not the same.
I just ordered some BPT fittings from Hose and Fitting Supply (Parker Store) in West Sac. Took over three weeks to get them, on a rush shipment! <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">
I ordered a fitting from Central Four Wheel Drive, and they had it in two days!!!
They also kicked down fifteen feet of tubing for free!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
