I have an 86 base with a TBI V6.Any one know where I can find the 2 fittings that screw into the back of the Throttle Body for the fuel lines? I've checked local parts, rock auto and gm parts direct. I sold my throttle body and forgot to take the fittings off :-(

What part exactly are you looking for? I don't remember exactly, but it seems like maybe the fuel lines screw into a pressure regulator that mounts to the throttle body?
I know there are adapter fittings out there to turn it into -AN line, but that isn't always the cheapest solution...

On the back of the throttle body there was 2 fittings, maybe extensions? The fuel lines attach to them, the lines are flared with an o-ring. The lines cant attach to the throttle body itself.I believe the thread side of the fitting to be pipe thread.The regulator is built into the top of the tbi.I've seen the fitting before but now I need it they seem to be hiding lol

the only thing online i can seem to find is extensions which won't help because they're made to thread into the fittings you're missing. there is a guy on ebay that specializes in TBI parts. maybe if you call him he might have some o.e. fittings to sell you. or atleast tell you where you may be able to find new ones. last resort could always be a salvage yard.

. Salvage yard should be a good lead, those EFI V6's were in millions of other cars besides Montes...
