      My builder just put a 6″ long tube hanging out of valve vent hole on my Lo206. I need a longer piece to run to the catch can. It looks like 1/2″ tubing. I went to home depot and they only had vinyl tubing. I went to Autozone and they didn’t have 1/2″ tubing. The vinyl softens at 175 F, which I think is no good for a vent tube. Where can I get tubing locally before this weekend’s race? What is the kind of tubing (material) I should get? Thanks for your help.

      Dude!

      Just put a piece of fuel line, stick it far enough inside that molded hose and install the other end inside your catch can, done deal, it won’t fall off, been running mine for this whole season with no issues at all.

      Please make sure your catch can has one or 2 bog holes for breathing, otherwise it will drive you crazy running like crap.

      Good luck with your race.

      My Ace hardware had some black gas line that was big enough.

      I was able to get some cooler hose at Autozone. It is heavier than fuel line. They have a STP/Briggs display, and I also got a fuel filter.
