Re: Engine and Propulsion System

If you can't find direct replacements consider having a set made of cold drawn seamless hydraulic tubing. There may be a specialist hydraulic shop in your area that can help you out. If the tube is metric it may be more difficult sourcing the tube but not impossible. Good luck in your quest.

These can be made by a good garage. They may be imperial on an older volvo. Low pressure part can be done in rubber.
