Default m10x1 brake Tee? Googled out of options

Ive been searching for a high grade stainless(if possible) or comparable quality material m10x1 brake line tee fitting. I have a 99l, that I wish to keep non ABS, yet use a larger 1 1/16th MC. I need two tee fittings to accomplish this(also req'd to be inverted flare I believe), and 15-20 minutes of google searching has found me nothing. I wish to avoid EBAY. Im trusting my life with a tee fitting so the random chance ebay offers is not for me.

Has anyone a reliable source for such type of fittings?

Similar, but Id like to do it without the dash fitting conversion

I don't know about the OP, but I already have the WRX master cylinders so I'd prefer not having to buy more.

I already have the MC I wish to use. Id prefer to just buy a 10 dollar fitting than sell, search and buy all over again just to come up with a leaky MC or something stupid.

Id like to find a trusted brand IE parker, gates, etc.

Im talking with a local heavy duty truck shop, they can source what Im looking for most likely. If I find it, Ill post it.

Im not opposed to yellow metal, but I may be deleting the x configuration so I would like to have the highest quality available to me. We'll see..

If they can get them, can you let me know the price. If it's reasonable, I'll take a couple and perhaps I could pay you to ship them to me?

Why cant we use an American Tee with the proper american t fittings slipped over the metric line? I still have other shops to call locally, going right through the phone book for foreign truck service and parts. Nothing is hydraulic on modern american stuff, but the foriegn and older stuff used juice.

Some of us like a challenge. It's sometimes the thrill of the build rather than the easiest way out.

Haha true, well 3/16ths is the common size line, so you can use metric couplings on one end, and sae on the other. My quest is for the most part over. I have some cobbjobb brake lines now, strung under the chassis, until I can get the car off jackstands. Ill be doing it over through the chassis properly when I find the brake lines. (Gotta drop the rear subframe againthough god damnit)

You see my problem is that I broke a brake line off right at the soft line by the rear wheel. I want to simultaneously upgrade the MC, and add an in cabin adjustable proportioning valve. So from tonight learning that SAE/metric fits on the same line, Im pretty squared away. The thing is information like this is slightly out of the norm and not easy to find.

With all due respect Scotty. Eat a dick.

We're not making our rides mad tyte. We're not ****ing up the suspension by dropping them to the ground. We're not putting hella flush tire/wheel combos on it that are insane. We are not in anyway doing something stupid to our cars. So why the ridicule? No really, why? In fact, we may come up with a good, cheap solution that may benefit many other members in our position. We are simply looking for a solution to upgrade the master cylinder in our cars for increased braking performance. What about this pursuit justifies your scorn? I know you know a lot, and I'm cool with you when you express that, but when you're an ass just to be an ass, it's annoying.

Yes, I can definitely make this in the machine shop at work, but I really don't have time, hence the looking for an off-the-shelf solution.

I can spend 150 on the one Subaru MC (a parts store rebuild which I don't always trust) that happens to work in this application, or I can use the $15 WRX MC and a couple of $5-$10 tee fittings.

Well, Im personally looking for the SS/Nickle plated versions partially for bling, but durability. I also live in the salt belt deep in NNY, many moons farther north than your NYC baller would call upstate. My master was free as a take off from when I crashed my 07. I dont think this particular fitting exists. It sure doesnt seem like it.

I wanted to simplify the engine bay, upgrade, repair etc in one shot. I can get it done like that, especially now knowing the SAE counterpart works in conjunction. SS lines must be a little more corrosion resistant, again my OE lines rotted off.

Not to bring this back from the dead but....I was just searching for the same thing. And its not making things WAY to hard. Why NOT try to find this so if you need replacement hardlines you go walk into any NAPA and get a preflared line without mix and matching all your lines...

This was particularly important for us in our stage car cause the easier it is to find replacement parts the better, sometime at overnight service you need to find a part in the middle of some small town...

anyhoo here it is, with a 4th hole for mounting

Have you tried the places that specialize in race parts for something like this. Tilton, Brembo (the REAL brembo, not the OEM stuff), AP?

I think you might have better luck with one of those places.

Never did try them, and I will probably go a bit deeper when this 13b swap ends up running to the point where it requires brakes. Until then...

Alright guys, I know I'm bringing this pig back from the depths of hell. But because it pulls up straight from google when searching for this part I figured I'd try and help everyone out.

BMW Used these Tee's from the factory on E30's

Part Number: AT-34341111435
Cross Reference: 390297

Link where I found them http://www.autohausaz.com/pn/AT-34341111435 , this is pretty cheap but mainly they are local to me. They can be had cheaper on Ebay and there are a few european websites that sell them as well.

Hope it helps somebody.
