Help Finding Correct Intake Manifold Vacuum Fitting

Need some help!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm searching for an intake manifold vacuum fitting for my 1968 BB. Original was removed before I purchased the car. You know the saying "stole from Peter to pay Paul". From what I can find out it needs to have three connections (nipples). The assembly manual list part number 3891527. Not sure if that is correct. Here are the components that need the vacuum.

Automatic Transmission
AC
RS Package

Anyone know where I might find this fitting? Anyone got this fitting for sale? Any suggestions? Trying to stay original. Thanks!

Tim

Wouldn't he need a three hose takeoff?

I thought power brake booster took it from the carb base or intake plenum?

Talked to the guys at Rick's today. They don't have what I need. I need the fitting that has three hose takeoffs. If my car had power brakes the one listed would work. Oh well, thats what I get for having an odd optioned car.

Bummer,..let me look in my bag of books. You need a 3-port without the male-threaded brake booster provision?...right?

I'm sure our site sponsor would like it if you ordered one of their #APN-0338 ( http://www.ss396.com/mm5/merchant.mv...Category_Code= )

That's correct. I may be able to get by with a fitting that has two takeoffs. I would have to use a vacuum line tee for the AC and RS.
