Default Vacuum line part #

Hello i am new here thanks in advanse for your help.

Looking for replacement vacuum lines on 1996 3800 (K) N/A motor. One line runs fron the Throttle Body to the EVAP Canister Purge Valve. The other line runs from EVAP Canister Purge Valve ,over plastic intake, to the EVAP Vacuum Switch.
I have been to three dealers and was told these lines are no longer available.
Thanks Ron.

Are you talking about the "Plastic" lines or the "Rubber" lines?

I used steel brake line and bent to suit with rubber to connect. No more cracking plastic!

Default Re. Vacuum Lines

Alan, these are the vacuum lines made out of plastic with rubber ends,
I was able to order the line from the Throttle Body to the Fuel Pressure Regulator & Modulator Valve. Part # is 24506302. Was hopeing to find the other two matching lines.
When you git old you become set in your ways, i have used only dealer or AC Delco parts for over 30 years. Still have a 1970 Cutlass and a 1972 LeMans runing on AC Delco parts. But things change, front wheel drive and OBD II gives me a head ache.
Thanks Ron.

I know the ones you mean now! hmmmmm
Well if they are really disconitnued, then maybe custom bending them? A little heat & a whole lot of patience can go a long way too. How about splicing in Silicone hoses instead?

Just use a tube bender and you get no kinks. That small tubing can bend fairly tight. Don't need heat. Just add a short length of rubber hose on ends to connect. It'* more durable and cheaper than oem.
