Still trying to find a replacement “Y” hose for the air rail, given that mine has a split right at the “v” part of the Y and some other cracking. I had mentioned a place here that manufacturers replacement hoses (p.s., hydraulic, radiator, heater, etc.) as needed for shops which has been in business a long time and is pretty much THE go-to place in the City for that type of thing. I sent my tech bud over to them earlier today with the hose in hand, and the main guy there opined that yes, he could make a replacement hose, but “no” as to would he. He says that he would have to buy a new mold just to make it, and he wouldn’t be willing to do that for just one hose. He suggested to my tech that he go to the local NAPA distribution center and look through their hose assortment in the back of the warehouse to see if he might find something there that would work.
NAPA turned out to have several “t” hoses, but no “Y” hoses. (damn Jag! ) None of the “t” hoses though, would work, as the hose diameters were not the same as ours.
Anyway, I’m wondering - what if I had my guy go back to the hose place in a few days and ask the man there that if we could guarantee sales of 10 hoses, would he then be willing to buy the mold and, if so, how much would the hoses be?
Anyone else on here think that is possible? Assuming the “price is right”, would you be interested in buying one of the hoses?
