    Got a replacement brake vacuum booster hose coming that will need to be cut to length. How long is the original hose on a 1970 Z28? Maybe to the nearest 1/8"?

    Thanks in advance

    it's 9 3/4", just measured my original, maybe when you get the hose you should connect on the intake side and mark the measurement to see where it lands on the booster side. You never know if something shifts by a 1/4" the hose could be 10" +/-.

    Curious Sonny. Does your brake hose arc up or arc down? Seen them both ways.
