Radiator return to crossover pipe 251121062

Has anyone recently been able to source this 251121062 (no suffixes) pipe or got any suggestions for making one up from stock size pipes? Thanks.

Thank you for the suggestions, I have tried all of the places I know of at home and abroad but everyone seems to be out of stock.

Have you measured the OD of the mating parts to know the ID of the pipe?

chances are there is another pipe longer with similar bends that can be cut down, or as you say use stock straight pipe.

The ID of the pipe is 38mm where it joins the front to back coolant pipe and 32 mm where it joins the metal crossover pipe on the back of the engine bulkhead. I have not taken it off yet to discover its exact form, I was rather hoping to have a replacement ready before I did that.

So you need 32mm and you can stretch that to 38mm with a cup of hot water.

this is 38mm for example, too short but maybe something longer amd the right diameter like a rad hose can be cut down.

Have you emailed Brickwerks about this? If Bernd Jaeger is showing them as "ask for availability" there must be some about. 36 Euro isnt extortionate for a big hose these days.

Thanks Silverbullet and all that have responded, this particular pipe seems to be in short supply worldwide. I have taken a punt on buying a Gates 20823 coolant pipe from the USA which some suppliers suggest is an alternative, close fit, to the VW pipe. I have not seen it yet so I don't know how close it is but when I do I will be sharing the result here. I am off to the IoM TT races next week and I am not expecting it to arrive before I leave so my feedback here will be delayed.
