Source for brass T bleed valve

When I was replacing the fuel hose I learned why I'd had some leaks at the bleed valve. Someone filed off the barbs in the past. Anyone know a source for new valves?

I have used this company for years for Air, Fuel and water products

McMaster-Carr

Also try your local Napa store.

This is more appropriate although it will require the addition of barbed fittings.

IIRC, those t-valves are rebuildable.. I know tightening the packing nut will often fix most t-valve leaks.

As I mentioned, someone filed the barbs off mine. It didn't look like the barb section was removable.

That Ebay brass T valve is available at my local hardware store. I think they're used on icemaker supply lines. One side is readily adaptable to accept a 1/4" barbed fitting. The other side not as much. It's a compression fitting. However, the other side will never see pressure since it's the drain side. It should work to replace the OE fitting. Epoxy or solder it to the bracket??
