    Great OE style Vacuum lines

    Was originally having a hard time finding good OEM style vacuum replacement lines. As many of you know they become very brittle with time. I happened to stumble upon the F-150 forums and the guys with the old trucks were having the same problems.

    One of their members Recommended MSC vacuum lines, and provided a link to the correct size and thickness (0.106" ID x 5/32" OD, 0.025"). They Come in multiple different colors and the price is hard to beat. I ordered multiple colors and leanths, and I must say itís a perfect fit. Just thought I would pass it on for people looking to replace their brittle vacuum lines; link is below.

        so they bend and stay put? Good deal. Might consider making some new ones for my car. I've been running rubber line for years.

                  Here’s a picture of a couple of the installed vacuum lines attached to the EGR and EGR Vacuum solenoid (green and red). The downside is they don’t mold quite as nicely as the originals but they fit perfectly into the rubber grommets which is nice.
