I am looking for an adaptor which converts the MRP/Elka shock IFP fitting to a Schrader valve. Supposedly, the old Manitou IFP Service Tool kit had one part which fulfills this function. Unfortunately, the tool kit in question is almost as rare as a dinosaur nowadays.

Any suggestions and tips are welcome. It would be especially cool to have something available in the EU area.

Below in the photo you can see the MRP adapter on the left and the piece that's missing at the moment. The blue arrows indicate how the adapters fit together.

Thanks for the quick reply. It was already noted that Shockcraft carries the tool in question. If possible, an option located a bit more closer is under search. The shipping costs alone are a bit steep for a small part like this.

The help is highly appreciated though!

I agree with Dougal, the missing adaptor looks like a Rockshox adaptor for the early 2000 forks. It should be pretty easy to find.

Checking the thread has proven to be problematic. The only way so far has been to try if it fits. What's for sure is that it's not a standard metric thread.
The thread on the Manitou and RS adaptors is a 5V1 schrader thread. It is a special thread, close to M5 but not quite.

Things cleared out quite a bit after finding out that the internal thread is indeed the 5V1 Schrader thread! Does the Rock Shox Monarch adapter (part #00.4315.027.010) have this thread? In other words, it converts the internal 5V1-36 thread to an external 8V2-32 Schrader thread? Unfortunately this information can not be found anywhere.
