Front forks air hose

Post by wishbone63 » Sat Sep 15, 2012 1:17 pm

I just completed a trip from St. George, Utah to Harrison, Arkansas. When I got home I lost all air in my front forks. Would anybody know of a work around or where I can find a replacement for the air hose connecting the front forks?

Hard to see on photo, but there is a crack on right fitting.

Get an 1/8th inch pipe to tap out the holes in the fork caps, then install fittings for 1/8th inch nylon air hose :

The fittings come in straight, 45 and 90 degree styles, the hose itelf is a few dollars a foot. You can buy it at any well-stocked parts store or any truck dealership, it is commonly used on air-shifted truck transmissions.

[color=#0000would it make sense to just redo ALL the air lines like this? I also have an '83 Aspy and am wondering if this would be a wise preventative measure to take, giving the 30 year age of the exixting air lines.
