These guys have done a great job on all my steering hoses. Swivel ends, etc.
Very reasonable prices, quick turn around.

I'm pretty confident that the flexible line is identical to any other type
44 based manual tranny.  You should not need to replace the hard line ...
there's a flare nut connection at the interface from hard to flex line.  If
you are doing this I'd recommend that you replace the clutch slave cylinder
at the same time ...

I'm a bit hesitant to make this offer given the fact that I'm still waiting
for some tools I've lent out to be returned ... but I do have a flex line in
the garage at home right now ... if you really need the car fixed right away
I would be willing to ship it to you with the expectation that you would
provide a replacement ...
