I had a cobbled up hose from the air cleaner to the carb, it worked, just didn't like it. I went to O'Reilly auto parts and found part #20267 radiator hose for $12.99. It fit perfectly, no cutting, looks good, 2 hose clamps and saved a some money. Plus this weekend for our state, is a TAX FREE weekend for purchases under $2000.00. Works for me.
