Oil line fittings

I'm having some problems with my feed line, I cant find any fittings (t-fitting in particular) from home depot or crappy tire that fit on my existing fitting thats on the back of my block and i'd rather not buy a sandwich plate. The fitting seems to be something between 1/2 and 3/8 (i think), So I guess I have to look in to some other places.
Where have you guys bought your fittings locally?

all honda everything is metric, the oil press in the back is M10x1 thread. so anything you get from home depot or canadian tire, or anything else that's SAE is going to basically make your block garbage. if you already jammed something into the oil press sensor port, then I'm sorry...

you can get metric fittings from Earl's or Holley or Russell fittings... prolly Aeromotive too. I got mine from Summit Racing online.

Ya, I made this post before I knew about/understood the whole bspt/NPT/AN etc. systems. The fitting in the back of my block was put there by a shop, so I think it should be okay.

Its going well man! thanks to your help, my oil lines were running well. The Ebay feed line started leaking after I a put a restrictor at the junction, so I'll get another one made by the local hydrolic shop tomorrow. Down pipe cleared everything too.

NOTE:ebay oil lines SUCK!
