Quick question since im at work and dont have accses to my car to check. Hopefully going to the parts store during lunch...

I need to know the internal diameter of part 136 in this pic:


its the clear surgical tubing looking hose that goes from the overflow tank in the back of the engine compartment, straight through the floor and out the bottom of the car... mine was brittle and cracking all over.

Were you successful?


That clear tubing is like 15 cents a foot at Home Depot (I just bought several sizes for my brake bleeder kit, 'cause that, too, was old, brittle, and cracked).

So I'd just buy several sizes (the new hose is pliable and stretchy)

3/16 is too small... 5/16 internal diameter is perfect. I dont have the little acrylic/plastic elbow that goes from the nipple and angles the hose to the side anymore so ksspe that in mind. I just slipped the hose directly over the nipple. If you thread it up from the floor first, its a lot easier then mounting it to the tank and trying to push it out through the trunk area.
