Anyone have the lenght of the Vent tube in front of the engine compartment where the accessory power steering vent hose attached to? Also interested in buying one if anyone have one, they are rare i know:)
Im making my own by cutting a original vent tube.

Do you mean the fresh air vent adapter for PS cars?

The original vent tube for power steering equipped cars is actually a flexible hose slightly over 4" in diameter. As Robert mentioned there is also an adapter that is attached to the baffle beside the radiator support.

The adapter is 6 9/16" long, small end is 4 1/4" in diameter, large end is 5 5/16". there is a screw mount on this piece that fastens to the inner fender. I can forward you some photos if you would like. If you're making your own originality is probably not an issue.
