I'm going to start replacing vacuum lines but don't know what to buy.

Any advice on materials, dia. etc...??

Hi,

There are an abundance of three-way and four-way fittings in and around the W123 body, engine and interior. Aside from that, there are plastic color-coded lines that run throughout the car. The plastic lines are the main paths of vacuum while the 3 and 4 way fittings are the "joints".

www.performanceproducts.com
www.autohausaz.com

These sites should have them. The local dealer might be of help too, but my experience goes to $how that your wallet will $urely be empty. You could try your luck.

Vacuum connectors & hoses (2 way):

sorry for the late thank you.

good info!!!

me thinks this is where my restoration should begin, or at least shortly follow a couple other neccessities.

It's real hard to make a diagnosis of problems since everything in or on the car seems to stem from the vaccum system.

thanks again
