Anyone know of a quality air cleaner connection hose for a 3b?   One sourced from a guy I've been buying from for decades is falling apart after a couple of years.  Afraid all of the vendors get their stock from the same low quality suppliers we've suffered from.  Thanks,  Bob

I've seen several different kinds. What doesn't translate always is the quality.  Same goes for other seals etc. that get brittle real quick.
 
I've learned that, sometimes, mil vendors take an extra step to ensure their products hold up. 
 
I've been to this business way back and liked their setup.  Thanks for posting the link, Art!

I have in my parts stash an oem nos hose now for a long time. 
Locating them is a few and far between proposition.
I plan to use mine very soon.
They were made of rather thick construction so that engine vacuum does not collapse them. 
Due to the age of them, the thickness and fact that they are stored straight (not pre curved) they will need to be well warmed up before you install them in their curved position.
Nice score !
