Question 1969 Shovelhead crankcase breather fitting?

My 1969 Shovelhead is missing the fitting for the crankcase breather. Located to the left of the oil pump. When looking at the motor from the back. Does anyone know the size of this fitting? Or where to get one? Thank you!!

That sporty gear case vent fitting is the same as a shovelhead crankcase fitting? Just double checking before I buy this.

The fitting are the same as the early Sportster used..
That part from VT uses a steel tubing...
You can get a piece of copper that bends much easier to replace the steel....
You will need to flare the end.

1/2 inch pipe, flare fitting for 3/8ths tubing. Available at any hardware store.

It's not a pipe fitting. Learned the hard way.
