Default 31 Victoria Vacuum Line

The previous owner of this car did not hook up the vacuum line. The fitting on the firewall has been installed and looks fine. At the intake manifold there is a 1/8 in. pipe threaded plug. After removing this pipe plug, you are inside a wide open manifold casting. I don't see how the seal is made on the steel vacuum line. Also, the brass fitting on the vacuum line that came from Synders is too small for the opening in the intake manifold. It would seem that I need a brass fitting of some sort that will replace the 1/8 in. brass pipe plug going into the manifold and that has an input connection that will receive the fitting on the vacuum line. What would I call this adapter? Thanks for your help, Ed
