Default Vacuum fitting

Anyone know where I could get another vent tube fitting? Or any info on thread/tube size so it can be replaced if I can't buy just the vent? Mine disappeared.

Spruce has it. Look near the vac pumps and you will see it.

Thanks - I think this is it.

Now, how to get it on.... The motor mounts interfere. Any ideas?

The most expensive hose barb you will ever buy.

You will most likely have to remove the pump to install it. Without the special vac pump wrench, it can be very difficult.

That's a lot cheaper than what I paid at my local Falconcrest... If I remember correctly, I paid about $75.

not really, a long drift pin and a small hammer does the job quickly and easily.

We removed the vacuum pump to install new fittings on ours, the same problem on the Arrow, the fitting interfered with the motor mount. I didn't need special wrenches to get it off the pad, but be ready with a new gasket.
