Default Vans RV Fuel Fittings

I have a very small seepage leak in my fuel system (fuel selector/boast pump) and I'd like to pressure test it to find it. I know not to pressurize the tank, but I was looking for some flare fittings to replace where the tanks are. The fittings are not standard 5/16 or 3/8" flare. where do i get this type of fitting? thank you david

Take a paper towel and cut in one inch strips. Wrap each connection and tape in place. You will find it soon enough.
