Default "T" off MAP from NPT bulkhead fitting suggestions?

Installing the new P-Mags onto the IO-540 and I need to pipe them both to MAP. My current MAP setup has a 1/4 bulkhead fitting that I am wondering if anyone knows of an adaptor that would work between this to plumb off a MAP hose. It eventually needs to go to a 1/8 hose. Been looking at options and just curious if anyone has any simple solutions out there. Closest thing I have found is this banjo fitting but I'm not entirely sure it would work.

Thanks all!

Default How I did it.

I split that aeroquip hose and put a tee and a nylon barb. I’m sure there’s plenty of ways to skin that cat.
Sorry for the rotates photo

I just finished installing duel P-Mags. This is what I used. Bought it off of EBay.

You can also just put a fitting into a primer port and run a dedicated line. Takes about 5 minutes.

That's what I would do. You've got 5 more bites at the apple.

Default Perfect!

Perfect! Going to go with the -4 fitting with 1/8th female port....exactly what I was looking for. I think this is the path of least resistance.

Thanks all!

Charles---get a AN826-3D branch tee to screw into the swivel adapter. Then you can use some -3 hose end stems to connect the 1/8 PMag hose.

Many ways to do this.

I used a bulkhead “T” on mine, which would install right where your current bulkhead fitting is…

Zoom in to the lower right corner (if the picture shows upright). It’s the blue T. Hard line up to the engine mount tube, transitions to the silicone hose going the the mag. Install a barbed T in that line if you have 2 EI mags.

OK……. zoom in to the upper left for the blue T fitting…..

Or have TS Flightlines just make you a new hose with the proper fittings.
