I measure the APC hose at 7mm, but the ends are a little "Wizard's Sleeve". 'll do that hose if I can persuade my source to sell me less than 5 metres! It's good to know the right bores though, but I think 4mm will be okay for most of it. What about the other air hoses, such as for the auxiliary air valve? I measured at about 12mm, so probably 10mm. Does that sound right? As for the bushings, I've got a bag from one of my local garages. Orca's going to be as tight as a Scotsman's arse^H^H^H^H wallet soon :) Cheers, Paul
