    This is not the same material that was used for th radiator hose. It is Fuel/oil resistant hoses.
    It is, again made by Nissan's OEM supplier in Japan.
    We are in process of producing Air pump hoses, and other emission hoses. It is taking time because we have to deal with different materials and manufacturing process.
    By fall, we should have reproduction wire hose clamps (6-7 different sizes) to cover entire engine bay as well.
    That was very clever of you pointing out the difference.

    But are they reinforced as well as fuel/oil resistant? Or will they collapse under vacuum?

    Excellent! I'll be wanting a set. But probably not until next month, as I already blew through my car budget for May!

    Thank you for all your support!

    Due to exchange rate $1=80Yen and Tsunami damage, things and cost of these products are tough, but we are going to put major investment for the Z car parts this year!

    Just for clarification, the "check valve to intake" hose you show here is the style that is on my series 1 car with a build date of 1/71. The series 1 cars had both the early and later style for this hose.

    Thanks for making this available and I'll be in line for a set.

    As far as I know, Series 1 has vacuum inlet coming out at bottom of Air tube. Series 2 have the same hole but pluged. And It has another inlet at the top.
    I aslo found out that you can used these hoses on 74 260Z 75-78 280Z by changing the length. (1 pair of tube cutter is required)

    Jay, As always, over the top. One question though. What about the 1/4 inch white paint ring that was on the original hose? Should one just use some white SEM paint for that?

    Randy, I thought that white ring was a piece of cloth tape - I guess I'll need to look at mine a bit closer. Can't tell for certain from this close-up, and don't have the car with me today.

    esprist, I just mention this just for informational purposes, and as the original owner of one of the last series 1 cars made in 1/71. I have seen a number of series 1 cars made in 1971 with the mastervac hose from check valve to air intake manifold fastened at the top of the intake air manifold, and not the end of the manifold as is the case with early series 1 cars.

    Just an observation and point of interest, and perhaps others with original late model series 1 cars might comment with there build date and vin #.

    Your contributions and efforts to provide high quality parts is much appreciated. Thanks

    Dan

    Arne. You are correct. After 40+ years the tape on my hose disintegrated and some melted into the weave. I thought it was paint, but after speaking with Jay last evening he also informed me that it was tape. Mystery solved. Thanks Arne.

    Hi Dan. I have some series 1 parts on mine and its a 2-71 build date. That being said, my hoses are fastened at the top. VIN: 23242 . I attach a blurry picture with the original hoses.

    Thanks for the pic, Randy. Your picture may be a little blurry, but not as blurry as the parts many find on transition cars, ie., late series 1/early series 2 cars.

    Thank you guys for all your valuable info.
    Well, originally when we thought of producing them, we were going to make Series 1 hose, so you could use it for Series 2. Series 2 (and Late series 1) intake has a plug on the side so you could fit the early hose right there if you swap the inlet. On the other hand, Series 1 intake doe not have inlet hole or plug at the top. More money for us, but it will look correct. Series 1 hose will be out this summer!!!!! Tsunami had delayed many of our production line.....Oh well.

    So any thoughts on what type of tape will be appropriate for this purpose?

This new format just isn't working for me. Can't find anything. CR*P!

    Dan,
    If you are trying to load a picture into your post, click the "go advanced" button on the lower right of the reply box. It will expand the text editor to include the "manage attachments" command. Does that help? Once you click "manage attachments", the new window will have an "add files" button... and then a "select files" button. After you have selected all your files to upload, there is an "upload" button.

    Here is a picture of the E46 balance tube with the connection on the end. I think the e41 type balance tube has the connection on the top? Or both end and top?

    Thank you for the picture. As it is shown, E46 on Most Series 1 car have inlet on the side. E41? Series 2 and 3 have inlet both at the top and side.

    Thanks, Chris. I'll give it a shot.

    What-da-ya-know......It woiked.

    These cloth tags that I have appear to be a soft, shiny silver, silk fabric with an adhesive on the back.

    Thanks, again for the great prompts for my pics, Chris. Just took a close look at my balance tube and found "E46 JAPAN" cast into the underside. When compared to your picture, Chris, this would be found on the other end and opposite side of the balance tube. Needed a mirror and flashlight to see it as it is on underside as mounted in the car. The other difference is, it has both hose connection locations, top or end. The end port in mine has a threaded plug, and the check valve to balance tube hose is connected at the top location.
    And, again, my car is one of the very last series 1 cars (vin# hls30 20419).

    That's the same balance tube and configuration as on my very late '71, Dan.

    Yes, both of my master-vac hoses have badly aged cloth tapes on them. No way they're going to come off intact. No idea what to use to replicate that. I suspect that they used to be labels back in the day, similar to the ones Dan pictured.
