Fuel line fittings

Does anyone know where to find these bubble-style fittings? I finally got my intake reassembled and now I'm dead in the water because of a broken fitting from the regulator to the fuel rail that I can't seem to replace. Obviously, this is a custom setup with the pressure regulator mounted on the firewall rather than the stock location.

Worst case scenario, I take the whole fuel rail off and have the old fitting cut and a more modern one welded on in place. But I'd rather just replace what is broken.

Any ideas?

Take it by one of these guys, if they can't fit it, no one can.

They can't do it either. Sent me over to a custom welding place, so hopefully they can make something.

Annoyed, because this was all obviously custom made at one point, but it would have been much easier just to cut the fitting on the fuel rail off and weld on a standard AN-6 fitting, and use a common AN-6 adaptor on the regulator side. Would have worked better too. It's just easier at this point to make a new hose rather than tear the whole intake apart yet again.

They look similar to gas fittings to me. Maybe look there if your man doesn't come good.
