    Vacuum connectors, why so freakin 'hard to find?

    All I need is a 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/8 T fitting with a 1/8 rubber cone connector to install an autometer boost gauge. After going to 8 local auto parts stores, nothing. I finally ended up with a 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 T, a short 1/4 rubber tube, a 1/4 x 1/8 plastic connector, then a short 1/8 rubber tube to connect to the hard autometer line. Sure it's not pretty, but i give up. Just thought I share this with anyone else frustrated with their search.

    Thanks, I managed to get it to work with all those connectors I got. Went out for a test drive, no boost, got worried, then when I was in 3rd gear, floored it, and sure enough ~14 psi.
