Van filler hose...

Postby max and caddy » 15 May 2016, 20:59

So I decided the steel tube round the rubber filler hose needed to be looked at...after a lot of grunting the rubber hose pulled out and is badly swollen and generally dead looking...it appears to be 42mm ID and has a bit of a curve to it when fitted..( the original had a kink in it..not ideal) so where can I buy 480mm of semi flexible diesel filler hose for a sensible price?

Nowhere it seems...any suggestions?

You are a glutton for punishment! I couldnt get the filler hose out of the conduit but being as it appeared to have a thin plasticy inner liner & wasnt perished I didnt worry about it.
Pretty sure its a special size, typical syncro...

It wasn't the rubber I was worried about...the metal tube needed attention...wasn't to bad it turns out but was on its way..42mm with a 4mm wall...has an orange lining..not sure it's original but think it will be.

I'll add this as it's relevant to those who have trouble filling up.
