Source for Intake Manifold Water Hose nipples

Hello

Been to many of the big Alfa part sites but have not been able to locate a source for the steel water hose nipples that go in the intake manifold. Mine are in bad shape. Project car that somebody left plain water in too long.

I make them in stainless steel. Some trickery is involved in getting those without the "hex" base out.
Generally, todays antifreeze prevents those tired ones from getting worse. Either dead anitfreeze (more than 2 years old) or plain water is the cause of initial deterioration.
