Default Brake Line sizes and adapters?

So, I picked up a new Willwood adjustable proportioning valve for my 69 coupe, and have ran into a snag. The original hard lines at the original proportioning block come out to the front brakes through a 3/16 brake line using a 1/2"-20 count tube nut. I originally wanted to just buy a matching 1/2"-20 female to female coupling that will allow me to use a pre fabricated line from Napa to adapt this 1/2 inch line to the wilwood (3/8"-24) block.

Does anyone know where I can find this oddball sizeed 1/2"-20 3/16 tube female to female. Or any suggestions?

I could just use the tube nuts that came with the wilwood and cut/reflare my lines to the 3/8, but I dont want to.. (laziness) Ill probably end up having to do it anyway.

3/16, not 3/8

That's what I did, a lot cleaner. Look on the bright side, once you flare it on, you only have to do it once.

Went back to napa and decided to just buy some more pre made 3/8 (3/16 tube) lines and just replace what I had. Better choice in the long run and it all works properly. I like the wilwood adjustable bias unit. Very nice!!
