Shocktech Ram Barb

Hey guys, in an attempt to complete my quest for a complete shocktech front end I finally got my hands on an appropriate ram. My swivel barb from the stock STO ram fits but the rear barb doesn't. I had a few others laying around but none fit. I searched on here and a rough google search came up with nothing. So now I ask here with hope that my search doesn't leave me SOL. Where can I get a barb that fits? I'm calling BBT on to see if they can point me in the direction in the mean time.

That's worst case scenario. I got this ram off eBay and the photo had all the barbs on it, what came in the mail was a different story however. If it comes down to it I'll buy another one but I'd rather not if I can avoid it.

This barb is cheaper and better than the one above; it has a slot with an oring on the base so no threadlocker is needed to seal the barb.

The problem could be with the base of the ram. The base is made of two pieces and some time they don't line up properly, which prevents the barb from threading in more than 1 turn. If thats the case then you'll need to sand down the threads of the barb until it can sit flush on the base.

That's not the issue here, the stock barb in my case just falls through the hole on the base of the Shocktech ram.

It sounds like you have the wrong size barb. Are the threads on the ram intact or do they appear damaged?

probably trying a 6-40 barb in a 10-32 hole, older STO rams have a 6-40 barb at the base.

That seems very possible. I have a new barb on the way so I'll report back once I get it and throw it on. Thanks guys.

Sorry for the delay guys. I bought a barb off of eBay(being cheap) and it didn't fit. So before I threw it across the room I went to a friend at a local shop who was on vacation during the whole search for a suitable barb. Turns out a barb off of an Ego fits and works great. I'm not sure if they come any other way than in a 90 form but that what I got. I also put one on my FGP and they both are working great!

If that's what the ego barbs are. Sorry I really don't know when it comes to the thread sizes. I always thought a barb was a barb but this search has shown me otherwise.

If it's an actual shocktech ram it's 10/32 threads for the front and rear.
