I have a rather large split/crack in the rubber hose between my air box & alloy intake pipe that sits across my engine (1HZ). Anyone know the best way to fix this? I was thinking about sikaflex but wanted to check if someone has had success with it first.

Cheers
Josh

Why try and cut corners on a critical part...... a few $$$ (hundred) saved now might be a few $$$$$ (thousand) lost later.

Shake head in disbelief.

Give the Emergency Tape a go. Worked well for me on the Patrol intake hose. Still there after 3 years.

Easily replaced. I did so on my 80 Series. You will find the silicone 'Rescue Tape' will give you a good temporary repair in the meantime. Normally available from Jayco Stores.

I'm more looking for a temporary fix, as the old girl is getting a turbo soon.

Yeh, Tape it up and save a heap of money on the turbo, when it sucks a gut full of dust past the tape it won't be worth putting a turbo on.

Gday,
Wrap it up tight in "3M Scotch self amalgamating tape". Give it a squirt of Aero start while your engine is runnung to check for leaks and check it before you drive in any dust......it will last for months.....if not years.

Considering this..." ironJosh
I have a rather large split/crack in the rubber hose between my air box & alloy intake pipe that sits across my engine (1HZ)."

....one could suggest that as "split/cracks" don't appear overnight whilst parked the car has already been driven, perhaps for some time with said "split/crack" in place. Maybe any damage that may be done has already been done?
