Thanks for posting the pics! Look at the close up shot of Steve's valve to breather line...The mark is identical to your original. Do you know if either of the two you posted above are still available?

Can you buy a hose of any kind that will work? I ordered what I thought was correct but it's for the open element and that's all I can find.

I'm just thinking of all the judges I've p%$%# off. I want to be sure I've covered all the angles. Those guys will probably show up with cutting torches and pneumatic shears to inspect my car... ;)

Judges... :-*

Marty,
    The NOS GM hose in the second set of pictures (3942524)  is what GM sold as replacement for the original hose in the 1975 P&A book.  I am not sure if the part number was the same in earlier parts catalogs because 1975 is the earliest one I still have. As far as I know the 3942524 has been discontinued.  Do an internet and eBay search and they pop up every now and then :).

I did a search for this part number and I can't find a hose. I checked the majority of the restoration parts houses and nobody list one for closed element. Does anybody know where I can find a hose?

I have one off of my Pro-touring camaro 327. It has hardened on the ends with a crack at one end but you should be able to do some reconditioning.

Daniel,

I wouldn't loose too much sleep over this hose. I think the one Charley is offering is as good a replacement as any. I plan to keep mine until a 3942524 comes along. Who knows, maybe someone will stumble on this thread and offer it (guys, PM me before Daniel... ;D). And...how many 1000pt cars are out there with a born with hose? Can't be many...

You could repair the crack with something like black silicone. You might see it if looking for it but you should be able to hide it pretty well.
