    Send a PM to Mopar_JA and see if he has one. Also the old Mazda B2000 used the same one.

    Try these guys.

    They sell the reflective hose at auto parts stores. Ask for hose that goes to the thermostatic air cleaner.

    You could probably find a substitute at Home Depot, too...

    It needs to be the correct approved part or it will fail. If the guy comes back I hope he posts a picture of what he needs. I think he is looking for the pulsed air injection tube.

    Yeah, he said it goes to the back of the air cleaner which makes me think it's the air injection? If it's the simple heat riser duct that looks like a dryer hose but much smaller, that's $5 at the auto parts store. That one goes from the heat shield on the manifold to the thermostat on the air cleaner gooseneck on the front of the cleaner. But the pulse air injection tube and the valve is a little more complicated and tougher to find. I stupidly gave my PAIR to some guy who took it because his was missing too and he never donated to the site as promised. Now I'm out a hard to find part. Otherwise I would've given it to the OP. LOL

    I used a piece of reflective/dryer hose from home depot back in the day when I had my carbed engine. Passed smog inspection fine and the guys never said a word about i.

    The first gen uses a flapper valve you can get from Napa auto. The metal pipe might be harder to find.

    I think you might be able to bend up and flare your own but judging by the length and odd turns in the pipe, it's tuned for scavenging. So I guess you could potentially screw up the air intake with you got the length wrong. But the approx. 1" diameter pipe might be too big to bend and flare without special tools. Or maybe a thin wall conduit pipe packed with sand and heated with a torch with some threaded fittings on the end?

    If it looks stock is would pass. I know there noisy if disconnected from the air cleaner.

    It amazes me that the NAZIs in Cali require everything to be exactly as factory made the systems.
    I lived in Massachusetts where they used to do similar smog on vehicles.
    I had a 78 Toyota Celica with a 1963 3.5 liter Buick aluminum V8 in it. Yes, you heard it right.
    Anyway, it used to pass since the only regulation was to pass the "sniffer" test.
    It didn't have a cat on it either.
    You can have a vehicle with all of the pollution controls on it, if one component is crappy, it won't pass the sniffer.
    AND - a vehicle with no pollution control can pass the sniffer test. FTW...

    Ok, sorry for the rant.

    Nah, you're welcome. I'm seeing that ANYTHING being sold in Cali has a carcinogen warning sticker on it as it is cheaper to get it labelled and onto the market than trying to prove your product is completely safe and having to pay extortionist amounts of money to test and back up the claim. Cali has lost the plot. A lot of good trucks ended being scrapped because the owners had no end of grief trying to get them to pass smog when most of the time it was something relatively small holding it back. We frequently have people join just to get help to pass smog. And then there's Volkswagen pulling their shady crap to sell some really bad polluters. Nice work guys

    And now the president elect wants the head of CARB to be the head of the EPA or something like that. That will really help with pollution...

    79d50 PicknPull yards are your friend & so is Shamrock Salvage yard in Ridgecrest, Ca. I voted for Trump but we need a one person government (King) to properly place blame & replace with another King... There are too many dang politicians + no two people will cooperate about anything in good ole USA ~ we love to fight whether it's over how the money will be spent or fighting with other countries military or terrorists ~ Happy New Year & enjoy your piston powered truck ~ seems the near future could be all electrics especially if the can be driven long distances before needing more battery gas
