Carb fuel intake plastic

Carb day for my new build was yesterday...aside from a few side of the road fixes from the previous owner that have been corrected, I have one remaining problem.
On the duel carb float bowl assembly. There is a plastic elbow that fits over a brass inlet. Two; one into each individual bowl. One of the plastic elbows is missing.
The previous owner ran a fuel line directly over the brass inlet. This stretched and ruined the fuel line when removing it from the inlet.
I have searched this site “fuel bowl inlet” “fuel bowl elbow” fuel bowl “intake”. Carb bowl inlet. Carb bowl elbow. Etc. unable to find information on these.
The diagrams on parts warehouse and partszilla do not have a part number or even a label for it, as if it solely a part of the bowl assembly.
Does anyone know the part number or numbers to locate replacement.
OR
I vaguely remember reading about a Harley Davidson part that allowed more fuel flow. And replaced the brass inlets with a single elbow part. I believe it was in one of the ear shave modification feeds. But I’m unable to locate that in the 1000 different ear shave posts. Click image for larger version

I've posted some links to the elbow a few times, but I don't think it would be in any of the earshave posts. If you shop around, you can get those pieces for about $8 each, but I've seen them as high as $44. If you keep digging, you can probably beat the prices on the links below, shipping is nuts. It's just a 90 press-in 5/16" fuel inlet.

Someone had a thread going on this about two months back.
