Default '95 SE Vacuum line fittings

Thanks to Andrew, the LIM gasket, APN UIM, Valve cover gaskets, thermostat, coolant temperature sensing unit, oxygen sensor, and serpentine belt were all successfully replaced on Saturday. During that ambitious day we found another severed vacuum connector and others that were cracked. We replaced a couple of sleeve connectors and yesterday I repaired several elbow and t-connectors with heat shrink tubing. I tried several searches but didn't find any references to replacement parts for these items.
Sure would be nice if there was a package of all these rubber connectors to the hard plastic vacuum lines so that all could be replaced at once. Some elbows and sleeves look like some available at parts stores, but the two on the throttle body were both cracked and looked more unique. I repaired several of the fittings with heat shrink tubing (Andrew'* suggestion), hopefully I'll pass smog the next time.

Has anyone compiled a list of the part numbers for all these vulnerable rubber vacuum connectors? It would be nice if you could buy a package of all of them and then just replace them all at once rather than one at a time. If I had thought about it I could have color coded the heat shrink tubing to dress up the engine a little, I did have to use some blue heat shrink on the throttle body connectors, adds a spot of color.

Most dealers can order a vacuum fitting kit that will cover most of the fittings since it is by car.

However... to help you further...we'd need to know what you drive.
