PCV Valve hose

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen a hose that looks like this?

Nothing really holding it together I could just pull it apart with two fingers.

Another P.O.'s hack? and why have I missed this for so long. Could this be giving me a massive vacuum leak? Oil leak?

For 240z and 260z, the hose is ~ $15 for 280z ~$25.

You can clamp the hose on that fixture and you are good to go in the interim.

Thats what I was thinking till I found a hole the size of my thumb on the back side near the T.B. I order a new hose before posting. but what do I do for now?

I wrapped the old hose in e- tape just as an experiment. And at least my car will stay running. Now I know why there is a lower heat shield (not currently installed but its going back on tonight). I don't trust the e tape fix at all but I need to do something till the new one arrives. Perhaps It's Moto Guzzie time for a while.

15-6214 $25.72 Motorsport Auto. Have one on my 77.

As stated above it has been ordered (from MSA). It is amazing how sensitive the 280z's EFI system is to vacuum leaks.

I have never liked the way that hose was designed.

Had a 77 that would melt them on a monthly basis.

Use the heat shields.

I have modified my to use steel braided hose.

Good luck

It will run. I will take it on one trip to my girlfriends and pick up my motorcycle till the hose arrives in the mail.

Aren't you worried that your arms will get tired if you try to lift it that long?

Well it's just a motorcycle and I think MSA is located here on the west coast. So I only have to lift it till Monday, worst case scenario.

I may be skinny but I am strong.
