[200q] hose sources and cruise

Hi folks,
    Yes I've discovered that my P/S hose is leaking. Well at least it isn't
the rack or pump anymore, they were both recently replaced. So I plan on
removing the hoses and bringing them with me to a heavy equipment shop or
"hose-shop". However if I can buy from a Q-lister instead for the same or a
lower price, I'd rather do it that way. Anybody making these on the list?
Any suggestions for a source? Unless they turn out to be outrageously
expensive, it seems to make sense to do them all at once rather than to
wait for each to fail on me. 
     Luckily the leak is slow now and I should have a back up car by the
end of the week. 

Second topic. The rod that holds the throttle in place from the rubber
diaphram has snapped off it's linkage. It broke from the plastic ring on
the rod.  I think a trip to the hardware store will allow me to mcGuiver a
solution failry easily but if anyone has had the same failure and come up
with a way to "fix" it please drop me a line. Thanks.
