What are you guys using to replace the high temp rubber hose on the oil drainback tube from the turbo?
Are you using regular worm gear clamps to secure it or has anyone found a wide clamp(like fuel injection hose clamps) so it does not cut into the hose.

Where did you find silicone hose, we had no luck when the head was off a couple of month's ago, Advanced, Auto Zone, Pep Boys all said they had nothing that size, that is why the old one was put back on.

We use clear plastic hose with a worm clamp.Have used for years with no issues except it gets hard and has to be replaced each time it's removed.NAJ spaceman is having some real issues .I don't know if you saw his posts ,but I recommended he PM you.Oh I think FWD sells new hoses.

I will be looking for it, sounds like Cam timing, Rocker Arm, Cracked Dist Cap, Faulty Ignition Wire(s) issue.

Silicone 5/8 inch heater core hose. Napa sells them, so does TU.

You might want to read the second post again...

Carquest will probably have them too.

Find a local place that sells nothing but hose. We have a place called House of Hose (Hoes is what we call it hehe) But they do EVERYTHING hose related. I had them build my water and oil lines to my turbo as well.

I looked on FWD Performance, found it at an aircraft supply store for $6.85 per ft.
Thanks to everyone for the quick replies.
