Can anyone name the part in the photo?

Yep...that my friends is a cross threaded fitting on the inlet side of my diesel lift pump which leaks diesel like a pasta strainer. How could it happen? Well hanging upside down laying on the engine with 6 sharp objects poking into me didn't help, but in the end good old human error strikes again. I'm trying to relax telling myself that it could be worse. Lori could have been backing out of the slip with me up at the Seattle Boat Show when the engine died, oh ya....that could be worse!

So forget about my fantasy of finishing this fuel system project by noon. If anyone knows someone in the market for a Hudson Force 50 Ketch with a non-operable engine, I just might know someone in the Market to SELL. It's moments like these where living in a house sounds pretty darn appealing. But perhaps my luck isn't all bad because I have been carrying around a NEW lift pump for 2 years now. Why because you never knows when you will need one due to a Bozo. 3 stores and about 3 hours later the new fuel lift pump is ready for instalation.
