Does anyone have a source for the red rubber hose found on early tire pump?

Could do what I did on my radiator hoses. Red was not available locally so I got black and painted them red.

Or a welding supply store for acetylene hose?

Cut it up and sell what you don't need on the classifieds.

Depending on the inner diameter of the hose, this may be another option that you can buy at Harbor Freight in Aurora and then cut to length:

Don't know for sure if the red hose on my pump is original, but it sure looks like it's been on there a long time. Note the ribbing on the hose. :-)

Looks like Carbide headlamp hose to me...

What is the inside diameter of the hose you need?

I'm not sure, but I don't think acetylene hose is designed to withstand 60+ PSI. I could very well be wrong though. Dave

I am also missing the fitting that the hose goes into, so I am not sure of the size. I believe 1/8" I.D. The pump is a Bridgeport Brass No 5 double cylinder pump.

About half way through the blog, it references tire pump rebuild kits including cloth covered hose from Macs and Shneiders.

You're paying for a wood handles and other parts, but I guess you could always offer them up without the hose and recoup some of your money.

Modern, braided bicycle pump hose is readily available from a number of places - physical stores and the internet. You don't have to buy a full blown build kit from the Model T parts vendors.

Also - I have a modern Silca Tire pump (made in Italy). It has a red ribbed hose just like Mike Strange's antique pump above.

You can purchase red replacement hose here:
