    I don’t think they are all universal, I think there are 2 different thread sizes, one metric (newer axles) and old imperial. If yours had the banjo style bolt attachment, then it should be 1/4BSP, if they have the push-in type, then I think they were metric.

    1/8" BSP to 6mm nylon tube push fit works, get a reel of the 6mm nylon and you can fit extended breathers then.
    1/4"bsp to 6mm if you want to do gear/transfer box, bell housing, timing cover.
    Local pneumatic/compressor places or eBay.

    I just purchased some 90 degree push fit connectors, I think I bought 6mm x 1/4BSP.

    Edited the original reply, they are BSP, not UNF.

    Are they really 1/8? I thought they were 1/4.
