Shaft log hose size question.

91 prostar with the poweslot, does anyone know what size hose to use and length. Mine was basically destroyed but also defiantly wasn’t original. Mine seemed a little on the long side. Can it be short? Not too much room between the transmission and prop shaft. I got it all apart just wanna make sure i put it together right.

1.75" ID x length to suit. You can adjust to any length to get it to work. Just use a good grade hose (two-ply not recommended) and double clamps on each end.

All back together. Actually was very very easy job to do. Hardest part was making a socket to fit inside between the couplers.

Looks like you cut that one down about half so it would fit in between the flanges.

Make sure you have a good match between the flanges upon final installation. Typically look for 0.003" - 0.005". I like to get closer to three.
