Jerry, what year is the XT? Plastic tech has come a long way since then, and maybe ethanol wasn't even in widespread use then?
Yes we can do the female threads also but my only concern with that would be stripping out. We have a variety of brass fittings to be moulded so i will have a look and see what would suit
