Quick help needed- Water Hose water fitting not screwing in?

Recommended Posts

I noticed the connector leaking and removed it.

when I go to replace the fitting it keeps stripping the threads of the new fitting ..

suggestions how to fix?

You may need to chase the threads in the manifold.  The easiest way is with a tap, but you may be able to do it with a pick or some other tool to clear the threads. 

That looks like maybe 3/4" NPT.  Could be 1/2", I suppose.  You might also have luck by threading a steel nipple in to chase the threads.  Certainly cheaper than a pipe tap.
