AC machine vacuum hose identification

Postby conley » Fri Dec 11, 2020 2:17 pm

Can anyone tell me what packing is used for this vacuum hose? It goes from the vacuum pump to solenoid on a Kent Moore/GM AC4 RRR machine. I've had no luck with any assortment of o rings/packings I have tried, robinair can't look it up, I'm sure it's something really common and simple but I don't know what to look up to find it. Replacement hose has been backordered for months

My jpeg files are only 2MB but it says it's too big, I'm guessing website links are frowned upon though

I've made my own before- just get rubber hose at auto parts store- right O.D. and slice off pieces- pretty easy and you'll have plenty of spares. They are called rubber seals or inserts.
