Replace broken conduit ell

Son is selling his 100 year old house and has a broken ell on the garage where someone backed into it.

From pics he sent I think he has to...

1) disconnect the wires inside then pull out back of the ell.

2) Unscrew ell, it will turn on the conduit

3) remove nut in junction box (think it has one) remove nipple

4) carefully run wires into ell and screw onto conduit

5) screw nipple into ell with inside nut, run wires inside


Does that sound about right? Never done it, not sure how the wires will be screwing/unscrewing the ell.

Any thoughts? Thanks

He went to Home Depot this morning and all they have is plastic so heading to Ace this afternoon. I'm thinking the conduit could be the ground, place is very old so who knows.

Yep that's basically it. You might be able to find an LB fitting with slip fittings or set screws that will not require threading onto the rigid conduit. That looks like maybe 3/4"? It should be pretty easy to find a malleable iron or aluminum LB in 3/4".

I'd never heard of slip fittings or set screw but he did find the parts and it's all fixed.

Thanks Ben
