Just reuse or buy new fittings and some steel pipes and make your own. I make new fuel, vacuum and other pipes for the cars I'm working on. The steel tubeand can be Bent by hand or by a pipe bender. You will need a flare till as well.

Good morning hondanan1974,,

The Wizard is correct, just make your own pipe. I used 1/4" tubing that I had from scrap leftover from another project.

Exhaust mainfold end; I took a 3/8" copper tube & brazed a threaded 1/4" compression end to it, then pressed this into to pipe going into the exhaust manifold.  On the 1/4" I attached a 1/4" compression fitting. 

Used a tubing bending tool for the 1/4 inch tube & followed the same shape of the old rusted tube. I have the WCFB 4 bbl carb on my 270 hemi which has a slightly different tubing layout that the 2bbl Stromberg. 

Used a brake flaring tool for the fitting that attaches to the choke housing end 

Looked everywhere for the woven cover but could not anything that came close to the look of the factory asbestos woven cover. I came across Classic Tube in New York and spoke with Tim Slattery (Senior Sales Rep) 800.882.3711 <tslattery@classictube.com> who said he could possibly fix me up.

Told him what size tube (1/4") and what length (29"). in less than a week this is what was provided.

thanks wizard and robert for the advise. that is the route im going to go. on the exhaust manifold side i already have a 5/16 internal threaded nut. 5/16 line seems a little overkill but i may use. would you know what fitting i need for the choke side? looks like a fine thread
