Where to buy?

I am at my wits end. I am getting ready to install the Bunn breathing kit on my 72 Bonnie. I have it already and cannot find anyone that carries a brass or stainless 1/2" UNC thread single 3/8" barb fitting to plug it into the TDC timing hole. Does anyone have one they would part with or know where to find one? Thanks.

JohnA - I find the secret is not to be too prescriptive. Just put in the basics and let Google prioritise the search results.

dralpo - I wish! No, I used to live in an area in the North East of Scotland called the Garioch (pronounced Geeree). My favourite whisky is the Macallan.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

The two suggested products have pipe threads. One is NPT which is tapered, the other is G which is British Standard Parallel Pipe.

Bombman is looking for 1/2" UNC. Maybe the aforementioned products are compatible? Or, I may have misinterpreted the product specs.

I tried Googling "UNC Barbed" with no results after a brief search.
