    I'm really confused... I've got a MCR220 with weird barbs that don't fit my 3/8" ID tubing...

    So I have to buy some new barbs... should I be going for barbs that have 3/8" OD? since the inside of the tubing will fit around the barb's outside...

    is that right?

    also, can anyone link to me to barbs at homedepot? I've heard you can buy them there...

    I'll probably drop by microcenter to look for them as well, since I'm pretty sure I saw some there last time i went...

    the general rule of thumb is that the outher diamater of the barb should match the internal diamater of the tubing, the exception is you can also go smaller I/D with the tubing then the O/D of the barb to get a tighter fit
