    Only tricky one to find a replacement for is the large s shaped moulded plastic hose that attaches to very top of tank.

    I had my vp big tank out for a Walbro fit, and that hose was buggered, couldn't get a new one - wreckers were good, allowing me to wreck 2 before I successfully managed to salvage a third one.

    Its not that dear, get an extra meter, you'll use it for something else anyway. So twice as long as that plastic one plus a bit more!

    I wouldn't have thought it would be flexi enough the way that hose lays. Work ok?
