I've run across the same problem, X2.
My internal water lines are all 1/2 inch outer diameter flexible PVC, and no one makes it anymore, or any of the slip rings and nuts for the compression fittings it needs. Wouldn't be so bad, but one of the hot water lines is leaking and the nut cracked.

What you can do, and what I'm going to do is get a short piece of newer hoses that will fit your threaded connections and attach it, then cut the other end off and get a barb to barb fitting (appropriate size to fit each hose, they have ones that transition sizes) and connect using that and hose clamps.

The alternative of course is to pull everything and rerun with the new stuff.
