    Default Flexible Air Intake Hose

    I am trying to find some decent flexible air intake hose to take air from a Dauphine tropical air cleaner to the carburettor. It must be betwwen 44 to 46 mm and capable of being lightly clamped at both ends. I have tried autoshops Fuel miser stuff but its useless just falls to pieces and feeds bits if aliminium foil into the carby. Any one got any ideas cheers

    Over the years, I have found that the type of cooling hose (flexible ducting) used in aviation engineering to be perfect.

    This ducting is known as SCAT hose, and is used to direct cooling air to generators, ventilation systems etc etc. It comes in a variety of diameters & lengths, and is very durable. The braiding includes a continuous internal wire loop (not visible), which adds to the durability, & prevents the hose from collapsing.

    If other options do not suit, this SCAT hose almost certainly will.

    Cheers,
    Kim.

    Yep, I concur, perfect replacement for R17TS/Gordini injection intake hose (once the original asbestos(?) filled thing has finally collapsed!)

    Who supplies this material? Sounds wonderful for Renault 4CV heater ducting at the radiator.

    Thanks

    If anyone needs them, I have a bag of NOS wind up clamps, about 60mm diameter which seem to be used on these pipes. They are ex Thames, R12? assembly.

    Farmerdave is happy to post them to those in need- free.
    No, you cannot have the whole bag .
