I am unable to locate a heater hose I need, UKC 4457. Goes from the hot water choke outlet to the manifold. Any help out there?

I see the hose in the new Victoria British catalog for $8.95. Also, I believe Rimmer Bros has it.

Doesn't look like anything special. Have you tried getting some plain heater hose from your FLAPS as a replacement?

Many of the molded hoses on my TR8 are NLA, but can easily be replaced with standard heater or emissions hose from a local auto parts store.

If you have something that makes a sharp bend and wants to kink, you can insert a spring from the local hardware store before installing it. That way it won't kink and it will look molded.

Your choice.

I didn’t try Rimmer but called Victoria, TRF, BPNW, and finally Woody at the wedge shop. No luck. I ordered a hose from the local parts store with a 90 I it and will fit it tomorrow. I may try the spring trick for the rest of the bend.
Hope to do initial startup tomorrow.
Thanks, Ted
