In this picture, I just highlighted the type of line I'm talking about. The one on the right is the 2 lines that run together. The type of line that always has those little connectors. Sorry for such an inaccurate description. But 2 are broken, and I was wondering if there's an easy way to replace them.

Rodney Dickman sells replacement metal lines for our cheap plastic vaccuum lines. Or, you can buy a spool of rubber flexible vaccuum hose and replace the whole thing. It won't look as pretty, but it works.

Go with Rodneys ....in the long run you;ll be glad you did...the plastic lines are no doubt like peanut brittle by now under your plenum. Yes, you;ll have to pull the plenum...but its a great time to make it "perty''.

For a quick fix......take some rubber gas/vacuum line, cut about 1 1/2 inchs long, and connect the
broken tubes together. this will work with n/p's

Good Luck,
Michael
