The preformed vacuum lines back at the Cruise Control Vacuum Pot Actuator area are dry rotted and not sealing.

Is there any source or has anyone found a decent fix for this issue?

I'm thinking I may have to use new rubber tubing along with some angled plastic tube connectors for the bends.

Thanks for the help.

Is there a picture of how the vacuum lines are routed for the C.C.?? I cant find a good picture to work from. This car.. I swear... Its a good thing that tires cant seize up on the wheels. UGH!

Is there only one design for all years? I can have them made up if there is some demand. I would need to find samples but that should be very easy.

I've found the basic vacuum diagrams but none that show you where the lines should be connected for the cruise control. I'm trying to work from pictures but no one ever says, "Hey guys look at my cruise control pictures!" The pictures I've seen have been few and very hard to make out since the person wasnt trying to get a shot of their VAC can and hose lines.. Just mostly engine pics that Im working from..

I want to replace my lines with the OEM hard plastic tubing but cannot find it online. I assume NLA? \
What does one do, just replace with rubber 1/4?

Just use rubber tubing.

Rodney does sell a replacement metal hard line replacement kit for all the hard plastic ones on the engine though if you prefer this look (can be painted/powder coated black).
