"Metallized tubing for air filter housing"
« on: December 14, 2015, 05:05:04 PM »
Hi guys:

  When I bought my pinto there was a very "ratted out metallized tube" - looked like aluminum covered cardboard - that went from the air filter housing to the charcoal canister under the fender. Does anyone know where I can get this tubing? Rock Auto does not show it.......Thank you.

I assume you mean AutoZone. I'll ask them about it.

Neither NAPA or AutoZone had this, but RockAuto did - it was in a strange place. It's an aluminum tube, 3/4", 36" long - fit perfect.

Chris, where does Rock Auto have it listed? Thanks.

Autozone and the others USED to carry a lot of stuff that they no longer have when I go to buy it.
sigh.

RUSS:

  Do a search on Rock Auto with part number 219-432. It's listed as an ACDelco "preheater hose" but its the exact length and diameter, an aluminum tube that is easily bent and shaped. $16.84. Good luck!
