    go to any auto parts store and get a pcv valve grommet. they come in all sorts of sizes nd one will work for you.

    you can goto lowes/homedepot, buy a liquid tight conduit ends, i cut the ends that would go into the liquid tight off and debur, drill hole in sheet metal, these screw together with oring seal on each side. i have used straight and 90's work perfect and only cost like $1-2
