Fraid not mate, I cant find any anywhere, although I'm sure I had some...

Rust, however I can help you with, got plenty of that!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

I've looked today, thinking I had one.

What I've got is a braided hose but it's a fairly short one, which I think is the other one from down the back there somewhere. :(
They think it's all over, it is now!

i could be wide of the mark here Kermit but here goes............................

if the pipe is not kinked in any particular way to avoid obstacles have you tried somewhere like Hyphose or similar. i know they deal mainly in hydraulic hoses but they are braided to withstand heat and high pressure think they do the hoses upto a max of 2" diamiter

as i have no knowledge of the BX model i guess im firing in the dark but it may be worth a phone call

Thanks for that thought don't know why i didn't think of that myself i used to do hydraulics in an earlier job DOH!.
Quite usefull when working on a BX the system was very well designed pity its not still used i am sure with modern materials it would be fantastic but expensive to produce.
I will try that option

Thank's :)
