    Clear Vinyl tubing?

    I have some clear vinyl tubing, 3/4", that I`d like to connect the crankase vent to the air filter to I can see the Yuk that goes into the system...
    do you think this tubing would be ok to use other than heater hose?...PR...

    Keep it away from the manifold, and you should be fine...

    I agree...as long as its the braided type pvc hose.

    I think you'll be fine. I use the same type of hose on one of my cars for the exact same thing. Hose runs from the valve cover breather>oil catch tank.

    Andy--I would not think it would be a problem. I installed a bilge pump (automatic type--one never knows when it would come in handy--kinda like home/car/boat insurance) and used the clear 3/4 ID hose with criss/cross threads in it. It runs right by my thru hull exhaust and no problems yet. Of coure the only time liquid was in it was when I tested the pump after I first installed it. Oh--buy the way--how is Silver?
