M18x1.5 fitting for Bosch 044 fuel pump?

As part of my EFI upgrade I am installing a Bosch Motosport 044 rear fuel pump. The pump's inlet requires a Male M18x1.5 fitting and the Female fuel feed fitting from the chassis is an M16x1.5. Does anyone know where to source a Male to Male M18x1.5 to M16x1.5 fitting (steel or aluminum)? The fitting would look something like this:

What fuel fitting or hose configuration are other 044 owners using?
I bought one from Ebay when I was in the UK and supplied it with the pump, but the wrenches didn't like it and sourced their own to adapt to the factory fuel line IIRC.

Pretty much a standard, off-the-shelf fitting in Europe.

Failing that, you could knock one up out of hex bar stock in about 20 minutes with a lathe with a screwcutting attachment...

This is Plan B if I can't find one on the shelf in the next 48hrs.

Does anyone know of a good specialty Metric fitting supplier?

a bit late but...

just got a hold of some metric fittings from this company in ohio, anyone looking for some might give it a try. fair prices and reasonable delivery:

Malone Specialty Inc. | Metric Tubing, Tube Fittings, Hose and Couplings

not a great website-- i'd recommend calling them as they are actually quite helpful over the phone.

hope this helps,
sean
