Clyde, don't give up on local shops yet. Are you in an agricultural area? If not, then get hold of yellow pages from some medium size town where there's a John Deere and New Holland dealership, and then look for the local hydraulic fittings shop. Near me in Albany Oregon A-1 Coupling have never batted an eyelid whn I bring in weird stuff. It's the AGRICULTURAL connection that makes the difference, so if you're some big-city slicker no local shop will carry those odd fittings. I don't know what diameter pipe you're talking about but I am sure that it's easily available, and no doubt the fittings too. I've had high pressure steel pipe made up for my bale stackwagon at a fraction of the Ford New Holland cost. If it's really small pipe like 1/8" or 3/16" or something, then there's always brake line in stainless steel or mild, and flaring is easy enough to do. I don't know exactly the fittings you need, but I say travel to the country where the eggs are cheap and plentiful.
