7/16" and 1/2" flare fittings

I drive a 1992 Jeep YJ and I'm replacing the stock brake MC with one from a '78 Merc. Grand Marquis. This MC use 7/16"-24 and 1/2"-20 flare fittings. I cannot find these fittings for 3/16" brake lines. Does anybody know where I can find them, or even adapters that will allow me to use standard 3/8"-24 fittings?

a good parts man should be able to hand you a repair kit that is a couple of inches of line with the oddball fitting on one end and a regular size fitting on the other
I have also had good luck with taking a plug and drilling it out to turn it into the oversize brake fitting

Just bought those fittings last week at "Carquest" down in Phoenix. Two of the 7/16's & one 1/2. But my lines from MC to proportion/combination valve is 1/4" You may have to do that also. That is common. Going hydra-boost, 4 wheel disc, corvette MC on a Scout II.

I've tried all the general parts stores around here and nobody has what I need. All of their fittings step up the line size as the fitting size increases. Thanks for the replies, though. I'll try to find a hydraulics store. Maybe they have the parts.
