An imperfection on the sealing surface of a fitting can cause it to leak. And what if it is a weld-in bung? In the past you would have to replace the fitting, a major headache, but now you can repair it on location. The Fitting Fixer utilizes an inverted cone, diamond-dust coated lapping head to repair the conical surface and restore the seal with the flared tube.
Using this tool is simple. The damaged fitting screws into a guide that holds it in place. Next, connect the lapping head to a drill and spin it intermittently about a half dozen times. Inspect the sealing surface to see if there are any imperfections. If damage is still visible, repeat the lapping process until you have a clean surface.
Using Fitting Fixer
5. Spin the lapping head on the fitting, releasing every 2-3 seconds to prevent clogging of the abrasive residue.

I had a damaged fitting on my oil pan and used the fitting fixer. This was very helpful so I didn’t have to pull the motor and take the oil pan off. It worked fantastic, making a nice new sealing surface on the fitting. It is a very good quality tool and customer service is fantastic. I would recommend purchasing one if you need to do a repair!

Used the -16 Fitting Fixer on 2 aircraft boost pumps where the fitting was part of the main housing that was leaking.
The 37 degree angle cleaned up perfectly and the housing was saved.

I was able to repair the damaged welded in bung on my radiator in about 30 minutes without removing the radiator from the car. I tried the fitting fixer and took the car to the track last weekend. No more leaky connection. Without this tool I would have had to incur the costly process of removing the radiator, having the old fitting cut off and a new one welded on. Highly recommend this product.

This tool worked perfectly. I damaged to An fitting on an oil pan when dropping an engine in a car. This allowed me to repair the fittings from underneath the car without pulling the engine out again! This tool can be a savior!

I used these on my dry sump tank after it was damaged. The fittings came out perfect. Thank you
