    Hello all,
    I have raised this question before but never had a thorough answer,does anybody know whether or not if the 80mm ID corrugated hose used on the air side of the heating system on the Dino is still available within the UK?

    Aircraft international standards specify and manufacturers supply spring wire supported, silicone impregnated, fabric ducting. That is a mouthful but it is the ultimate definition. In the US we can buy this ducting in 1/8" or 1/4" dia. increments in virtually any length. It comes in red, lasts forever. Go to your local FBO (Fixed Base Operator) at your local airport. Something around $1.00 per inch makes it a bargain compared to some Ferrari parts supplier's prices.

    We can't find OEM ducting here either.

    Luck,

    John

    Ferrari Parts Exchange and Re-Originals have the right ducting or at least it is very close. I lucked up on NOS pieces years ago. Remember you can stretch the stuff out quite a bit--almost 50%. Moss Motors sells very similar stuff for the MGA and Austin Healy. It is a little big but looks quite similar.
