    I am looking for hoses that resemble the OEM versions. The cloth braided sheathed ones (I’m sure they have a real name). I have an oil vapor hose that is no longer available.

    I breezed through the stickies section but didn’t see a reference. Could have missed it.

    Resource would be appreciated. Local not necessary but am located in Seattle.

    Thanks.

    Hydraulic hose supply shops have it I am almost certain, it's nothing special.

    Well, that is until you try to find it i metric sizes. ;)

    @moysiuan Do you happen to know the diameter of the oil vapor blow by hose I am referencing in the photos. It's a 77 308. Thanks for the help. I don't have a micrometer to measure the nipple width...

    One more supplier that many use...

    I have a 3.2 so I don't know what your breather hose size is.

    My guess is it is 19mm, but truly that"s just a guess based on some sizes on mine. That equates to exactly 3/4 inch, you might try a piece of a generic coolant 3/4 inch hose from a local supplier and trial fit it. If it fits, you have 19mm hose.

    I get mine from a local hydraulic shop. It looks exactly like OEM. And for what it's worth, they rebuilt my oil cooler hose for $32 instead of me having to spend $350 for a bespoke one online.

    Almost all fuel related lines can be found from Cohline.

    Just remember, braided hoses hide LEAKS.
