Default Where to buy pressure nipples

Anyone know where to buy pressure nipples for mufflers? I have a Slimline Pitts that I want to put two pressure lines on. It comes with one nipple and one mounting hole. The mounting hole takes a 5mm allen screw I want to replace with a pressure nipple.

I've looked and looked, but can not find anything that will work. Even a 5mm hollow threaded coupler will work, but can't find one of those either.

Any ideas?

Just a thought never actually tried this but what about drilling out grease fittings?

Yup, I'm just about to resort to that. The local hardware store has those, althought the thread is different. I can tap a new thread if I have to. I even thought about getting a piece of straight tubing and and JB Welding it in place.

Thanks. I'll check there. The only ones I've seen are the standard size (although they have a small and large). The 5mm thread is quite a bit bigger than the normal sizes.

Hey Minn. Stay tuned. After the suggestions I've (or other people) received from you in the past about smoke systems, I'm putting smoke on this plane. I've already got the TME pump, and pre-heater in the Slimline. I have a couple of tanks, but I haven't decided on what size to use. Should be fun!
