    Anyone know where I can find one? Not having much luck. This is the coupler you would plug your air hose into. Since this will be in the engine bay, I'd like to have something to cover it up.

    By NPT coupler do you mean a quick disconnect? That might be the keyword you're looking for, search quick disconnect dust cap.

    Do you have room to put a shut-off valve and male fitting on?Had much better luck doing it that way.Nothing to get dirty or corroded.

    I don't think rubber will corrode very easily.

    You answered wrong.

    Those are hydraulic quick connector plugs. They will not work for air quick connects. You would be better off looking for the tube ends that tig welding filler rod comes in or similar.

    Glad they worked for you. I have dozens of these and none of them would work with my air connectors. They are designed for hydraulics.

    I was thinking about the ball bearings on the coupler

    That's why the dust cover is protecting it from dirt and such
