Hi Paul,


Glad it all worked out for you. Depending on if Yanmah shipped one of the improved elbows, or not, they last about 4 years. A good replacement are the stainless ones available on ebay (others have posted). It might be a good item to have as a spare.



With best regards,

Just wanted to say thanks.  I followed your instructions and the hose was able to be removed from the elbow with little effort.  Additionally, the hose didn’t show any signs of cracking or dryness, so I just swapped out the elbow.

Thanks again for you assistance on this one and thank you to all who contributed some wisdom regarding the topic.
