RE: 5KCSTQ: breather hose question

I made my own with 2 different sizes of heater hose and an adapter
available at any auto parts or automotive hardware store.  It ain't
pretty but it works and cost a whole lot less than OEM.  Blaufergnugen
had them on for $27.95 US which would probably have been over $60
Canadian by the time I actually got my hands on it (currency exchange,
duties, taxes, government robbery,fees, more taxes, more government
robbery, etc).  One day, I will replace it with the right one, but right
now there are other more critical components that MUST be replaced with
parts that have to be bought, not made. HTH
