Default Need replacement nose T-fitting BAD

I have one friggin WICKED crack along the T-fitting that connects to the nose of the supercharger. No wonder my gauge is acting all funny!

Everywhere I go no one has anything remotely close to it. Where on earth do I get a replacement fitting? It appears everyone else is mentally challenged and has no clue what fitting I show them is for. I say, "A supercharger." They say, "What type of car do you have?!" I say, "A Bonneville." ... blank stares.

GAH! To hell with the public, I need help from you guys!

Vulcanizing rubber tape. Fixed quite a few vacuum fittings with that.

Tight fitting silicon hose over the stock cracked T-fitting with RTV gasket maker seems to have solved the problem. The boost gauge actually pegs past 10psi now!
