Oh... well i think find a brass adapter at either hardware, auto parts, or hobby store. I can say they definitely sell an adapter for those sizes at car parts store. it is plastic but still can handle gas. Hobby store sell metal hose connectors that small but from one size to another you have to look.On the carb fuel inlet, I think these are thread locked slash pressed in. So rotating yours sounds right. Mine as mentioned is at 5 O' clock.
Yes the fuel inlet size. Off the tank at the fuel cutoff, that valve outlet is tiny. I tried the usual mower size 1/4" hose. It contacted the larger barb area only, not the pipe on the carb fitting and cutoff valve. This fuel line is 1-2 sizes smaller than 1/4" hose. It's the same size as the carb vent line that runs off the top of the carb.
Mine is straight 1/4 hose. interesting...
