correct size of vacuum hose turbo hydramatic

Posted on November 2, 2014 at 5:19pm 2 Comments

I'm pretty sure anybody here knows the correct size of inner diameter of the rubber vacuum hose from the metal vacuum line to the vacuum modulator assembly? Mine is the original one, too old and does have several cracks now. Now the gear is not shifting anymore or let's say at too high rpm.

I don't have my car around me currently. So unfortunately I can't have a look by myself! :(
