replacement vacuum line?

Well, in my long-standing tradition of breaking one thing while working on another, I have snapped a couple of vacuum lines. In my defense, they are crazy brittle. Does anyone know if the same color-coded lines can be purchased. Or do you just buy what is avaialble in the required diameter. Thanks.

You probably can buy color-coded lines from a dealer but generic tubing is a lot less expensive and the vacuum doesn't care.

Just patch it up with a section of rubber vacuum tubing.
