Boost Gague Issue - UPDATED!!

What up?

the other day I was driving around and noticed that my Forge BOV and Autometer boost gauge werent working. I popped the hood and saw that the rubber nipple connecting the small plastic gauge hose to the "T" in vacuum line was shot. It was brittle and cracked causing a vacuum leak. I've replaced the vacuum line with a new one and everything was good.

Does anyone know where I could get another nipple or a more robust soultion that wont breakdown? Brass fittings or something like that perhaps??

Thanks

UPDATE: I think I've found a solution...

1 brass Tee fitting with 2 female 1/4in NPT & 1 male 1/4in NPT
Campbell Hausfeld PA1040 1/4 inch NPT Tee Fitting


1 brass 1/8in compression fitting with a 1/4in female NPT end
Parker 2FSC4N-B Brass A-LOK Female Connector 1/8" Compression Fitting 1/4" F NPT | SmallParts.com


2 brass 1/4in barbed connectors with 1/4in male NPT ends
Parker 4-4 B2HF-B Brass Barbed Connector To Male Pipe 1/4" Hose Barb 1/4" Male NPT | SmallParts.com


Small parts.com is connected to Amazon.com.

This is what I was looking for and took a bit of searching to find. It should hold up much better to the harsh conditions under the hood and seal much better.

More to come.
