Where you buy the tubing, do you have a link?

I'm sorry, I checked my records, and couldn't find a note on it, but I believe I ordered a foot of it from McMaster-Carr. You should be able to Google for it.

Hard to find short lengths, it's pricey stuff. But McMaster Carr does short lengths. I'm just trying to confirm if 3/16ID is what is needed. You want "High-Temperature Soft Rubber Tubing for Chemicals"

Hooray !... I found it ! ...Here is the link to the page, with all of the specs, and says it's gasoline resistant, and after 10 years, I can say for a fact, that it is. I had originally purchased this 10 years ago, to replace the fuel line in my 10 HP outboard motor. The receipt for this was in my BOAT records file, because that's why I originally bought it. The ethanol gas had turned the original one to "goo". A 2 ft minimum purchase left enough to try fitting it on my spare, early SU carbs. This is what I bought:

2 Ft. 5119K42 High-Temp Viton� Fluoroelastomer Tubing Soft, 3/16" ID, 5/16" OD, 1/16" Wall, Black

I paid a total of $14.66 (that includes shipping) to fix 3 carburetors, and it will probably last longer than I will. It is relatively expensive, but IMHO, compared to the price of the original replacements, I think it's reasonable. I've paid a lot more dollars, for a lot less critical-to-run items for my roadster.

Thanks Mike, that's the P/N I put into the shopping cart. Looking for a few more odds and ends to put together an order.

Sorry for the delay getting back to y’all.

I checked the hose on my ZTherapy carbs? It appears that they use question marked hoses or the hoses I have have developed a set.

Good to see you found a source!

Peace,

The Roadster car parts manual for the 1600 shows a picture of the old question mark shaped hose corresponding to P/N 16356-12210. That P/N is showing still available at Nissan. There is no superseded P/N in the on line parts catalog. I'm sure that if I ordered that part from Nissan I'd get the later style "j" shaped hose for 180 degree nozzles.

16356-12210 does show in the current catalog , however it is a no stock/no ship item and unavailable. Z therapy has hose available that can be used for early cars. We carry the Nissan hose for the 68 - 70 cars they are not cheap. https://www.datsunparts.com/1644
