If you buy the push type tap connector it usually comes with three size reducing adaptors one of them should fit then you just screw your 3/4 to it.

thanks but ive tyed that and it seems to be a totaly diffrent size alltogether ive got 1/2 5/8 3/4 1in and still no look in the end we had to hold the connection up to the tap so we could flush our engine down. i was thinking of blocking it up so they had to replace it with a tap that every body can connect to not put a tap on that only the chandlers can use as no one can get the right fitting for it.

Would one of those rubber fittings for bib taps fit over the end of the tap or is it to large.

its too large the next time i go i will take some photos of it and measure the diameter of the threaded bit. to me it looks very big and old like you woud see on a farm or on a building site, as its not got the household look and size to it, im going to a old plumbers merchant tommorow with my fittings and tell him which are too small and too big to fit it and see if hes any old stock that might do.
