    I believe you need an M10x1 male to 1/8 BSPP female like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pipe-Metric-Fitting-Adapter-1-8-BSP-BSPP-Female-to-M10-M10X1-M10X1-0-Male-KB/202349885736?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Remove the fitting from the filter body and replace it with this type.

    I just went out to the shop and tested. The linked fitting fits the filter housing perfectly, reusing the o-ring washer from the original fitting.

    I was thinking of leaving the filter as is,making the QD to the hose.The other end is the problem, I'm left with a male to male situation to attach the Brocock QD

    If the hose ends are BSPP it should work the same.

    In this case AliExpress is your friend. They have all kinds of options to solve your problem. These Foster fittings come in different threads as well, so you have to understand the differences. Personally I absolutely hate using BSP anything. The thread form is 55 degree as opposed to 60 degree for everybody else. BSPP (British Standard Pipe Parallel) does not thread seal. BSPP base seals, so theses fittings require a nylon or fiber washer at its base. When you look for a male 5/16" Foster fitting, they all come with a directional valve in the fitting. That is not a problem if you don't want that. Just use a pin punch and push from the filter side and it just pops out. Further most charging whips (hoses) seem to use 1/8" BSPP on the ends. You can make up any combination you want by just changing the end fittings accordingly.
