1 1/4 eyeball return jet

I need to replace the return jet eyeball that broke, but the local pool store said it's a 1 1/4 size and they don't carry that size. The return is going through concrete and is deeply recessed. I searched online for that size eyeball, but could not find one. Does anyone have a site suggestion?

Thank you

I remember a few posts about 1¼" threaded wall fittings and while there were several suggestions about how to overcome it, I'm not sure anyone ever found a replacement fitting.

Posting a picture with some measurements might provoke some suggestions on how to work around it.

I've sent a couple emails to online pool stores and they don't carry them. What is involved to change it to the 1 1/2 size? I'll take pictures of it tomorrow.
