Does anyone have a source to purchase the small diameter cloth sock which surrounds the 1/4 brass 18" long tube which goes from my Rochester 2 GC carb bi metal choke to the exhaust manifold?

thanks

The spck was not a Chevrolet item. If all is correct it is not necessary.

thanks for the info.
I am very sure my car had the sock when it was 7 years old as I remember it as a child. My parents bought the car new.

I assumed it was standard equip, but maybe my dad added the sock early in the car's life.

Someone told me once the sock was a regional item sort of.....used more in the colder climates to insulate the tube better. I have 1 or 2 I bought several years ago repop.

If you decide to sell one, let me know a price and the length & approx. inside diameter of it (I think it is 1/4 inch).
thanks, Original57, David

Not sure where the spare is......I'd prefer to keep it anyway. I did have to cut the one I used off, as the repop was too long. I have a 4 Bbl. carb. I actually took the pipe off last summer, and it really cutdown on my vaporlock problem. (I'm too stubborn to put on an electric fuel pump yet.)

Ecklers has one listed on eBay, and it is on their website. They list the app as '58-'64. I found my uncut one....looks like the one they're selling with the dipped ends to prevent unraveling. It is 15" long.

I have a feeling that the originals were made of asbestos. It would make sense for the times as it was cheap. Maybe the new ones are figerglass? Not sure.
