    I figured I'd check here before going the repro route again.

    The one I got a while back from Ames Pontiac was junk and I don't recommend it - at all.

    Also need a source for the correct upper overflow tank hose that I believe is ribbed and is affixed to this clip. Thanks in advance!

    Here's what the clip looks like:

    Don't waste your money on repro rubber hoses. Any modern "repro" rubber will dry rot and crack within a year. The best thing is to get an original piece of 48 year old ribbed hose. The original stuff lasts forever.

    That's what I'm shooting for.

    So far, no luck.
