Rubber connectors on back of heater

PostPost by: ART » Wed May 10, 2017 4:40 pm

Hi
Does anybody know where I can get the 90 deg rubber connectors that fit on the heater box to connect the hoses to the face level vents?
I am attempting to modify an early heater box to S4 spec, see previous post "S1 heater in an S4"

Regards

They are a bit rare (be aware there are two sizes I think the ones used on the MGB heater wont fit!). a good work around that will never be seen are plastic plumbing couplings and probably a lot cheaper too!

As far as I am aware these are one of the few parts that are not available as I tried to find some a while ago.
