Just got mine from Blau for about $80 or so...dealers typically sell it for
$85 > $95.
As you note, the old one gets real soft and falls apart at the block end.
The "T" you note in the hose is your challenge...there's a lip in the
rubger hose holding the plastic coupler ("bleeder valve" in ETKA) so avoid
it by unclamping the bleeder valve at the next clamp up, which goes into
another hose.  Finally, don't forget the scrubber piece inside the
hose--copper spiral brush--on the skinny end of the old hose.  Reuse this,
as a new one doesn't come with the new hose (it may be the "flame deflector
plate" in ETKA, but I can't be certain--only extra piece there).  HTH
