    Just grab some 1/8" copper line (most real parts stores will have it). You'll need an Edelmann-111200 fitting to attach to the gauge then use any 1/8" pipe-1/8" compression fitting to go into the back of the block unless you still have the original fitting in the engine then a 111200 will work there too.

    1/8 x 1/8 compression fitting Edelmann 168220 (everco 66a, weatherhead 66x2)
    1/8 double compression (stock gauge and engine fitting) edelmann 111200 (everco 11a, weatherhead 6100x2)

    I'm impressed, wish mine leaked just so I could go out check out all those parts! Nice work
    Burt, if you kept it on all the wheels maybe your gauges would still work.J/K
