I am restoring a late T steel tire pump with cast Ford script base. What is available for correct hose? What have you used that worked, even if not same as original?

Erich, I have use red rubber hose like they use in oxy-acetylene welding gear. Some is plain, some ribbed. Either looks OK.

Hope this helps.

Allan from down under.

There is a small company that makes very high quality model A ford reproduction parts. I am having trouble remembering their name, but they do have about a 6 page sales pamphlet . Anyway, they offer the correct black rubber hose with the cloth wrapping and seam, and also clamps in cadmium plate or bare steel. Very reasonable , and perfect duplicates of the original. They also offer the wiper arm and blades for the original vacuum wiper. Possibly a couple more items that can be use on T's. I will search for the name , but hopefully someone else is aware of them. They don't do internet, that I know of. Really good people.

Langs sells a black hose, and fittings, works fine for me.

A&L parts specialties 195 main st canton, ct. 860.233.3557 The hose is black neoprene with a cloth wrapped imprint , looks identical to an original hose. They have hose $3.95 , clamps $1.95 Chuck, $7.95 If you are picky, it is well worth the effort. I found a catalog online.

Thanks everyone for the ideas. I knew I could get it from Langs but wondered what other options people had found. Also wondering what the original tube was and is there any source for the identical item? Was there some variation regarding the clamps? Was there more than one supplier of tire pumps near the end of T time?

It's also available from most older VW (Bug) and BMW parts suppliers. Look for vacuum hose. It's cloth covered rubber.

I have a bunch of tire pumps and several have the original dried up old cloth covered hose and clamps on them. I can send someone a picture. email me at tmorsher@icloud.com if interested in posting it for this discussion.

I have a great VW specialty shop here in town. I will ask them what they have.

I have a real nice hose I got somewhere that looks like an original pump hose, but it just flops around. I think the originals were a little stiffer? Maybe I should try A&L?

The original hose on the pump was very stiff but that may just be age. Sure would be easier to use if it were more floppy.

that's what 100 years does to cloth wrapped rubber. they were probably pretty flexible when new. my originals are as hard as a rock.

There are some new pills on the market that claim to stiffen your hose...

Sorry couldn't help it..

I have a brass two stage pump and need new rubber packings. I'll check A & L to see what they have.
