    Hello All,
    I’ve been working on this little 1963 Evinrude 5.5hp Fisherman. My main bearing oil hose Part# 0303463 is broken and brittle and it is unavailable. Does anyone know what size hose this may be and what I could use as a suitable substitute.

    Thanks in Advance

    I’ve just substituted rubber fuel hose of the same diameter.

    Thanks Bob,
    That was my first thought but I wasn’t sure if this hose needed to be something special due to the heat being right on the block.

    Well, I haven’t had one blow up yet! Not much different than the other fuel hoses under the motor cowl.

    You should be able to find a short length of correct size Tygon at a local small engine repair shop.

    Ii also like the Tygon. It’s clear so you can see things happen. I save leftovers and use them for fuel lines it’s tough stuff.

    Thanks for the suggestion, this is the first I’ve heard of this Tygon. I will get some of this
