Brian...did the flex show up ?.... and will it work ? I should have sent you some SS hose clamps for it, we found a box of them yesterday from the same job.   Huh

Hi David,
Yes, the flex did arrive on Friday.  I'm going to give it a try yet this afternoon to see how it will work.  Thank you sending it.  I'll have the postage out to you soon.  Thanks again!

I tried the flex hose.  It would not go over the rubber.  The rubber looks to be 6 1/8" in diameter when the aluminum pipe is inside to keep it rigid.  The flex would not "stretch" at all.  That is some supper strong spring steel!  I did take the opportunity of working on the intake connector to double up the rubber coupling.  This way if I miss the outer rubber's initial crack I will still have the inner one. 

The search goes on ...
