WTB, a good piece of red carbide hose to run from a carbide generator to the brass line.
Thank You,
Larry

Can offer a 3' piece of this for $20 domestic postage $6. Old and on the stiff side but still flexible, black rubber inside with fiber reinforcement. Not too large to go thru splash apron hole.

Thank you Layden,
I appreciate you taking the time to look but I’m really looking for the original cloth covered hose for this car.

Can you post pictures or other documentation of just what the hose used on Model T Fords would look like? Did they also put clamps on it?

You can google red cloth hose sheathing and find all sizes to cover what you have.

Just saying,

Hank

Thank You Frank and Hank,
Not looking for the rubber hose and have done a google search but not found any like the original.
The suppliers use to carry it but have been out of it for about 8 months. It is on a long term back order.

Have you tried some of the international suppliers? There are some good ones in the UK. Will talk with our youngest over Christmas (Lives there of course) and get you a list. They do ship to the USA at reasonable rates, cheaper than ours.

All the Best,

Hank

Had not thought about them Frank, but called them this morning and they had one piece left. It was the length I needed to the inch so I really appreciate the suggestion.

Thank You and Hank as well for the help!

Let me know what you find. I recently did the hoses on my two '13s, and had the SAME problem. I found some plain red hose from McMaster Car that works, but would like to have the cloth hose too. I also learned from my experience the amount of hose supplied was not adequate for a '13-14. Perhaps it was for a '12 on back. Another thing I discovered is the last run Ron Gocek made of the hose was the incorrect diameter, and would not go through the holes in the radiator, or the splash shield. I spoke with Ron at Hershey, and he doesn't seem interested in dealing with the problem.

Larry,
I will let you know if I run across any more.
How long are the pieces you need that run from the radiator to the lights.
Depending on how this goes, I may have a couple 12” pieces left when I’m done.
