Silicone Vacuum Lines
Jan 22nd, 2010 at 8:01pm
 
Hi guys and gals!
We now have Silicone vacuum hose to replace the hard vacuum line on your 944 availible now.
because of the way some of the hoses are configured we had to make use of a couple of
genuine Porsche hoses - like the one with the "U "
this kit is a very good kit and the hoses will not collapse under pressure - we've sold a bunch of these and are having NO issues -
you can buy the kits here

if you want to replace just the hard lines then we have this little kit for you

Just received and installed silicone lines.  One hose at a time....so simple a caveman could do it.  Some of the old hoses just crumbled.  Thanks, great product.

I'm with Michael, I've read that the vacuum lines go bad but I don't know how to tell if they are. I'm about to replace the camshaft tower gasket and AOS seals and I'm wondering if I should just replace the vacuum lines while I'm in there.

Throughout the garage? that sounds like an engine problem...  Tongue    haha

Any news on the entire kit yet?

The PO of my '83 must have had a leak in the vacuum line and rather than replace it he just sealed it off.

So I want to replace the entire vacuum lines but would rather get it in one simple kit than try and mix and match and I hope I get the right stuff for the job.
