Default Carb Rebuild: needing a good lead on some parts

Hello, All. Its been a minute for me, but I'm deciding to give the old Kat a go over the winter. A lot of thing have happened since my last visit..

bike was lowered. rear end chopped. new rubber on front and rear, round headlight, zx led tail, new battery and everything actually played nicely.

I went to fire it up and the carbs started spewing everywhere.. rebuilt the petcock and narrowed it down to a faulty tee line between the third and 4th carb.

I'm going to tear them completely apart. remove all the gasket maker from previous patch jobs and stripped screws from over tightening.give them a good cleaning, and have them ready to test in the spring.

I need a good lead on the fuel tees.. so far I been seeing expensive brass ones but I'm not so sure that is the way to go. I also want to replace all the screws since most showing signs of abuse..

so to sum up im needing(info on where to buy, part # etc)
fuel tee's (2 of them)
replacement screws
4 rebuild kits
...and probably some things im overlooking.

I think I can source the kits from ebay and the screws from a local hardware place...but any information is welcomed. Thanks.

Would recommend local hardware store for the screws, and getting Allen headed screws instead of Phillips.

For fuel Ts I'd recommend sticking with OEM, any of the places listed by junker would work. K&L carb rebuild kits, Google search is likely your best bet as many places will have them. K&L product catalog might be good to take a peek at so that you can make sure you're getting the right kit number (eBay sellers in particular are not always accurate in listing what years their products are for)
