Vacuum hose running from hose T (to break booster) to manifold at "connection" shown in photo. Check valve was broken, PO had glued hose to check valve after barbed tubes broke from check valve. Connection of hose to manifold was also smothered in heat-resistant gasket glop. I have new hose and check valve.
Issue: After removing glop, connection of existing hose to manifold seems very insecure and loose. Hose in photo freely spins 360 degrees and can be easily raised upward about 3/16 in. Red "washer" is broken and partially missing.
Goal: I wish to replace the connection holding the hose into the manifold. I presume it should be virtually air tight and not require gasket glop to hold it in place. I see no nut or other way to remove it from manifold.
Questions: What is the connection called? Is the hose part of the connection or a separate part? How does one remove it? Part #? Suggested source? Is the hose supposed to rotate when installed? What other information would be helpful as I tackle this small job? Any and all ideas much appreciated.
