Default 59a inlet manifold vacuum line fitting 1946.

Have broken the banjo fitting bolt for connecting vacuum line from distributor to manifold. Located just below carb. Wondering what is the thread size?
The banjo fitting is hard to come by?
Thanks,
Phil

Phil, If you can't find one, let me know. I have some. The banjo fitting was authentically integral (soldered) to the steel vacuum tube.
Do you have the special vacuum fitting that attaches the banjo to the manifold? The one that the wiper hose connects to?

Yes I do have that one with the wiper connection. However have since gone with electric wipers. Its the bolt for the banjo fitting i'm looking for. My banjo fitting is integral with the steel tube.
Appreciate your assistance and advice.

Phil,
Up to you, but with today’s fuels the vacuum brake line is really not needed. On my driver cars I have the hole plugged
