Default new waterline fitting

I just replaced a 1/2 in. galv. waterline with 3/4 in. pex but am not sure how to hook it up to the 1/2 in. curb stop.What fitting do I need as I already have a insert stiffener for the pipe, and if somebody could post a pic of the fitting if they have one, it woul be greatly appreciated.
ps: we do not have water meters here, just a direct connection.

First you need a 3/4" PEX male adapter. Then a 3/4" x 1/2" brass coupling with a short brass nipple.

I don't have a digital camera to take the pictures plus I wouldn't know how to do it. I know it is difficult without a few pics. My neighbour seems to think I need a 3/4 in. compression x 1/2 in. n.p.t. Mueller type fitting. Is there any type fitting?

I assume the short brass nipple would go between the curb stop and the 1/2 in. side of the coupling in the picture?

You have it. Good luck with your water main replacement. I see you have been checking on another forum with the same question. Good luck finding the fitting they recommended. They do give some good advice but that depends on the one giving it. Some are just plan nasty. Here they are much more friendly and more willing to help. The advice is better also.
