Does anyone know what kind of rubber hose I could use to connect the carburetor to the air cleaner and what the inside diameter would be?  I'm guessing maybe a radiator hose.  Also, what would the inside diameter be?  Thanks.attachicon.gifSTP60473.JPG



Yes, radiator hose will work fine.


Inside diameter? -- Just measure the outside diameter of your carb neck and air cleaner neck.


Add 2 hose clamps.

I've made some progress since this last update.  I got 4 brand new 8 ply ag tires and all 4 wheels have been painted gloss white.  The blade is attached, the hydraulics are working, and the GK is running really well.  I also got the bodywork done on the rear fenders.  Next will be patching the hood and front fenders and painting the rest of the parts with the Rustoleum yellow.
