    hi guys
    could anyone tell me what is the inner core size i need to replace the boost hoses from top of dv ect small looking tubing.

    ive got a roll of 5mm inner core size silicone would this be ok or incorrect size?

    the only thing im stuck with why doing some other work.

    thanks in advance :applaus:

    i think its 3 or 4mm, try the 5mm on there and see if it fits, but i'm sure its smaller.

    thanks Kev,
    it does seem to fit tight enough but wasnt sure if it HAD to be a certain size? or is it ok as long as its on tight and leakless, the silicone ive got is not re-enforced in the silcone{with the string inside the silicone} would that be ok?

    yeh the vacuum silicone rarely has reinforcing.

    Put a cable tie round the barb to secure it on and you'll be fine.
