That explains the funny adapter hose deal I have on my '87. 3/8" hose ran up to a brass barb adapter down to the 1/8". laugh

I couldn't imagine any of the moulded vapor/vacuum hoses are in great shape with that many years of age. I recall replacing all of the petrified bits when I was going through my engine.
