    I'm looking for connectors that are 1 7/8" in diameter that mount on top of the poles that I can then connect street signs to.

    It looks something like what you see in the image below:

    In that case, I'd say you could maybe go with a 2" square post cap. It should still work, you just may need to drill and tap new set screw locations that are closer to center or use longer set screws.

    Another option might be to find some galvanized 2.25" OD pipe with a 1/8" wall, cut them to whatever length you need, slit them, and use them as adaptors between the posts and post brackets.

    Heres a pipe chart, might get lucky with 2 3/8 OD and 1 7/8 ID to make a sleeve like was said above. I think sch40 2" is 2 3/8 OD, not sure if that's too loose?
