I can no longer see James' excellent pictures. Is the fault at my end, or elsewhere?

Don't have the sizes but IIRC they are not any standard size. I remember once trying to source them from a hydraulic shop but they could not find exact match.

Vx don't make them, some other company does it for them, so is it silly to suggest trying to find out who does make them and ask them directly?

Not at all silly to suggest but I wouldnít know where to start

Iím clearly going to have to improvise as they donít seen available at parts stores or dealers. I will just get a selection of imperial and metric and find the closest match.

plenty on ebay or other online stores ,dependent on what size is required
then select a buyer which specifies what rubber to suite your requirement
credit to you James
many would bodge with garbage kitchen sealant  ::)
hope you are well  ?
good luck with your quest  :)

I think the reason this engine overheated is a failed HBV. lots of evidence of brown coolant etc over the hbv and pipes.

New one ordered :y
