Default Throttle body vacuum connectors 96 SSEi

Hi

My SC 96 has hardened and brittle vacuum connectors which are leaking now. the major one that needs fixing now is the "T" from the throttle body which supplies vacuum to the transmission (I think) through one side and the fuel pressure regulator through the other. my McGuyver-ing with electricians tape has failed (duh!)

does anyone know where to get a replacement or have a few spares lying around?

any help would be appreciated.

thanks

1996 SC Bonneville SSEi, ~155K miles (intermittent dash too)

they had vacuum tees with reducers built in at carquest that and some regular vacuum line and you can replace the whole thing.

Last I knew they were only available in packs of 5. But you could likely sell the other 4 in record time as there'* at least 10 people on here with a bad one.



Part number is in the picture.
