Post MAP bulkhead fitting 
Hey Brent,

Where do you get the brass bulkhead fittings you use for the MAP host on the MJLJ? I want to buy some so I can build a MAP reservoir.

Thanks ...

Hi Sven,

The brass bulkhead fittings can be purchased from McMaster Carr, part #44555K119 .

For building a MAP reservoir you could also use a small hose-barb connector to 1/8" NPT fitting. Try searching your local auto parts store.

Best of luck
Brent

This is the response i get from Mcmaster-Carr if i try to buy anything from them...

I'm obvioulsy not one of their special customers

David,
Due to the ever-increasing complexity of U.S. Export regulations, McMaster-Carr has decided to only accept orders from a few, long-established customers of ours overseas. We cannot accept your order, and regret any inconvenience this causes you.
Your order has been cancelled.

this is from the chicargo sales team...i'm off to try NJ ATL LA and Cleavland...Kathy has invoked a determination to succeed, in me, that i haven't felt since Rebecca Williams wore"that dress" to year 9 end of term party.

McMaster-Carr is Chicago area based. I have great respect for them. I'm close by, orders shipped cheapest way arrive in one day. What you need is someone USA side to order them, then privately forward the stuff. good luck, Bruce Roe

Top tip for a reservoir... if you want OE look...

VW's in hte 80's use a vacuum reservoir attached to the carb system - VAG part no 049129808C



Similar to this

Audi also used one (in Black) - VAG part no - 054129808



Just if folks are looking for something that is OE, it might help Smile
