intake fitting 1999 Ford F-150

Bought an old truck and it was leaking coolant. It was leaking around a fitting that screws into the intake. Called our local Ford dealership and said that they no longer make that part. The man at Ford referred to it as an "elbow" Any idea about where I can get the part without replacing the entire intake.

Elbow at back of intake?

I have 1997 F150 4.6L and had a leak on the tube (elbow?) that attaches to back of manifold and it was leaking. I cut off the the tube flush, drilled out hole to 3/4" and tapped it for a 1/2" pipe thread. I then attached a short piece of copper pipe with soldered 1/2" threaded coupling. I then soldered on an elbow, short pipe, and hose fitting. Took a couple of hours.
