Minispread Faucet Oring Fitting

Can anyone identify what type fitting this is on this faucet. The threads are slightly finer than a standard 3/8 pipe fitting. It fits in a tee fitting as shown below. I need an adapter for this fitting to go to standard pipe threads or a cupler with 3 inch extension.

This is from Elizabethan Classics EC317MWCP Minispread Bathroom Faucet .

I would like to answer but need to know why first? What are you doing?

Something must be too short... Its easier to extend the other side if so then do/find what you propose...

That is if im thinking what your issue is

I'm with Mike, I don't understand what needs extended.
Does the faucet stem need to be longer? I can't imagine why.

Good questions! The problem is the flexible hose that connects the hot and cold valves with the center faucet is in the way of where the hot and cold valves should be placed. If I could extend the stem of the faucet I could rotate the tee 90 degrees or perhaps it would be long enough to not be in the way of the hot and cold valves.

Best you may try is to use a 5/8" x 5/8 swivel ellbow. It may give you enough room.

Possibly a 5/8 swivel x 3/8 and change the supply lines to 3/8 x 3/8...

So remove the lines at the tee and install these 90's

Youll be Hard pressed to find any type extension for that spout with the o rings..

Mike has the answer, you need to find 2 elbows.

Personally, I would only install a wide spread faucet if the situation called for it. I would return this faucet and get a standard 4" spread.
