    Anyone have an M40 vent tube?

    This is a long shot.

    So it appears FCP can't fulfill an order I may more than a week ago, missed the email. Other suppliers are giving long lead times --- like more than a month. This engine isn't going to be in the car that much longer, but I'd like to have it moving again.



    What I need: M40 Vent Tube #6 Here (I'll take the hose clamp Number 7 too)

    What is the longest acceptable waiting time? Schmiedmann needs 30 days.

      I don't have one. However, couldn't you just use some heater hose for awhile?

      I'm sure this is not an approved repair. But it will probably last awhile.

        Yeah I contacted FCP and ordered again, they said 3ish weeks.

        Dealer said the same at higher cost. So my next FCP order should arrive hopefully in less than a month. Just in time for hopefully cooler weather.

          As I said in the WTB thread, why not piece it if it's a temporary repair? I think I used some leftover M42 stock molded vac hoses and a 90 degree adapter that I probably pulled from the same M42 system.

          Whatever the case, enjoy your 30mpg E30 when it's back up and running.

            Oh I read that, I just don't have any leftover or additional stuff unfortunately. Plus I needed to order a few other things anyways.
