Default Vacuum line replacement kit?

Greetings all!

I was wondering if anyone knows of a simple kit that has all the correct lengths of vacuum lines, complete with right angle nipples?

Some of my lines are breaking and leaking, and I just want to replace them all. But I don't want to just use generic black ones, since they are harder to tell apart.

Thanks!

I've haven't seen any kits but I've replaced a few of my lines using 5/32 rubber vacum hose its fairly cheap. I think its like 89 cents a foot at my local parts store.

I doubt they make kits for vacuum lines its just some tubing
here is a link to jegs they have an assortment of colors and sizes for you to choose. i bet it would be cheaper at napa or something.

Thanks for the replies ya'll, and the good ideas. I think I am going to get some color tube so I can tell it all apart. So 5/32nd is the right size?

Does anyone know how to repair the vacuum leak in the dash? I assume its the HVAC unit. But I don't know what line is at fault.

Also how do you get the white line out of that gooped up bundle that breaches the firewall?

Also don't they make stainless steel braided lines? Or is that for high pressure?

Lightbulb Replacement for hard vacuum lines in ninth generation f150s

I'm a noob here, so bear with me.

I looked around for quite a while trying to solve the deteriorating vacuum line problem. Finally I found a good replacement. They are 5/32" OUTSIDE DIAMETER Nylon lines from MSC. They are selling similar nylon lines on ebay, but nobody could touch the MSC price and they sell by the foot. I got Red, Green, Yellow, Blue and Black for .12 per foot plus modest shipping. Here's a link to the Red: http://www.mscdirect.com/product/48635932

I had to use blue for the pink Thermacter Bypass line. They have natural off white color I could have used, but I noticed the lighter colored lines in my truck seem to be the first to deteriorate.

These lines are rated at 170F. I wish they were rated a bit higher, but it's been about a month, and so far they still look like new.

It's quite possible these lines will work on other years, but they will definitely fit the stock rubber fittings on 1993, and I strongly suspect 1992 1994 1995 1996 if not more.

Thanks for the update! I ended up using some standard rubber hose that is for a windshield washer. I used some electrical tape to cover said hoses to color match them. Turned out fine, just fine.

Did this hose just fit over all the plastic barbs without anything else?
