Boost line

Any recommendations on a better way to pipe the boost line, particularly to the gauge?
The crappy "weed wacker" line has failed me twice now and getting it to seal is not working out.

Silicone hose is the way to go. I tapped the brake booster to a vacuum block and go from there...


Need some ideas? Come see my build [/URL].

Re: Boost line

does your boost gauge use a compression fitting? I am using one with the tiny 3/32 nylon tubing and it works well.

Re: Boost line

Yeah, looks like a standard 1/8th inch brass compression.

Re: Boost line

I am going to try to find a female barbed fitting today. I now have some silicone line.

Re: Boost line

The secret to the weed wacker line is finger tight + 1/4 turn, leave slack for engine movement.
