i believe in my utility room i have 2 of these. unsure about what to ask for them and cheapest way to ship. wonder if fit in USPS one rate envelope?

2014 Impala LTZ; Sold and miss my 95 DCM 262K thanks to all who helped me over the years!; 87 caprice became my snow car in 2000 and it was laid to "rust" in 10/07 with 338K. Rebuilt trans at 308,000 (lasted pretty long I think); new radiator 330,000 (they said it literally disintegrated when they took it off)

I would like 2 myself,can't seem to find any locally other than a Chinese flavor that appeared to be built in someone's garage.
I must have been asleep when the first batch was made! 😴

Mount that Rare Beast to a plaque and hang it on your wall.

It looks like those 4 remaining hoses on the ebay link were gobbled up too. I'm all set with a spare or 2 but maybe someone else can convince them to run another batch.

All it took me was some phone calls and emails to get this whole thing rolling and the hard work is done. Maybe they can run another batch if they see enough orders. At least there is something to work with since it is a Part Number in their system now.

I have brought-in old power steering lines to the custom hose-shop in-town and they've replicated - to the exact dimensions and configuration - the OEM units. Complete with rubber hose and metal sections, unions, etc. Just about any major metro area has an industrial hose fabrication shop that can do the same thing. If not, I know for certain that there are two in Atlanta that will do it.

This post is not talking about pressure or return lines but rather the reservoir fill hose.

Back when rockauto had these I bought one when I replaced the feed & return lines, pump and installed a PS cooler (my tranny cooler plumed in) so it should last another 20 years.

Looking at its shape, I suspect just a straight piece of hose could bend as needed to work

Indeed, the centerline bends aren't so extreme that a Goodyear/Continental E-Z Coil couldn't shape a piece of straight TOC hose. But it is nice to use actual mandrel-formed hose when possible.
