Where is the best place to get my oil pump line for m 1981 Arctic cat 440?

I just received my rebuilt 1981 arctic cat 440 spirit engine and the final touch is to replace the small oil lines from the pump to the intake manifold.. do I have to go to Arctic Cat to get these? Or Are there other alternatives? Thanks!

any small engine shop should have hoses that will work. You can also get that kind of thing online at most of the parts places such as www.DennisKirk.com or www.MFGSupply.com


It may be helpful to take a piece of the old line in with you to get the right size.

Thanks, I didn’t know if it was a specialty hose or not. The walls of the plastic hose seems thicker than a weed trimmer fuel line. I’ll do some checking at my local small engine shop.

An easy way to measure the inside diameter of a circular hose is to use a drill bit. Much easier that trying to do with a ruler. It is an old trick I saw in a MG workshop manual.
