Porsche Crest Rubber hose

Want to replace a rubber hose, but how do I make it as wide as the old one without tearing it apart (the length is just OK, so I can't waste any length).

Thanks,



Kees.





I know the new one looks a little smaller (diameter) as the old one, but it is the OEM part.

Cut the end of your old hose off and connect it with a piece of copper tube. Coat the end, inside and out with black silicone to make sure you have a good seal.

If you are going to create a connector, use a couple clamps to make sure it stays on. Otherwise try "sizing: the new hose: find something larger than the current opening with a tapered diameter so that it gets wider as you move away from the end and push it in there to stretch it. Some heat (to make it more plyable) and a little dishsoap will help. Once it's stretched, go another size bigger... I am not familiar with that hose but some hoses can be heated enough to actually stretch them to a permenant new size. Do you have enough to cut a piece off the end try it?

Thanks Toolman and Pors-sha911.

I can't create a connector (see pic), but I will try sizing the new hose.

Your right, that one ain't gonna work. You could also try to get a few inches of the larger size and whittle the end of the braided hose down to fit inside, and affix (glue) it together since it is only a vacume hose. 3M super trim adhesive works well glueing rubber together.

Cool

I would try a coupling. a short larger dia to fit the male fitting and, hopefully, fit the new line into.

You could also try a vaccuum fitting coupling (like Ron said) that has a different size barbed fitting on either end. You can find these at most any parts store. Usually in little rip-off priced packages called "Vacu-Tite"

Is this a solution?









I am asking this, because I don't know if it is wrong that the connecting piece is sticking in the charcoal canister? What goes through the tube, fuel or vapour?

Thanks,
Kees.

What you did in your last picture is exactly what I did. I just turned a fitting on the lathe. The hose sizes from factory don't make a lotta sense...

There is fuel vapor being pulled through by vacuum, venting the tank and trapping the fuel vapor in the charcoal canister.

You guys with your cool tools make me jealous! You're always saying something like this:
"So I grabbed some Titanium stock I had lying around the shop and chucked it in the lathe, turned it down and bingo- new brake caliper pistons."

LOL...

And of course 'and the design is much improved over factory'...

Cheers!

Guys, quit your whining and look at the potential for a major FIRE. Look at How did it catch fire?
and ask yourself how you want your fuel system integrity to be. Super safe or "other."

Yes, you can improve over Factory, given 40 years of 911.

Best,
Grady

Grady,

That's exactly why I was posting this topic, though it was a minor repair I was doing. I'm just starting the DIY on my car and I enjoy it very much, but I have to ask a lot (better save than sorry).
In the future I like to do the more "sophisticated" jobs I see on this board.



Kees.

Kees,

I hope you sealed that coupling and pressure tested it. As mentioned above, that line is for fuel vapor... can you say "explosive cloud" ?

Looks like a good solution as long as it doesn't leak... and obviously better than what came off!

Charlie,

Thanks for your concern.

It is pressure tested and according to the official Porsche main dealership's chief technician it's OK (they are really helpful).



Kees.
