83 Air Intake Hose & Air Filter Assembly

First off, let me just say how excited I am about finding these forums! it's good to know I'm not the only one who loves the Ranger as much as I do!

I just recently bought an 83 off a buddy, because it was identical to the one my dad used to own and would drive me around this rural county in. I had to have it. I knew it needed a lot of work, but I was willing to put the time, money and effort into it. But, almost right out of the gate I've hit a snag

When I got the truck, I noticed that the carb was exposed, as there was no air filter, air filter assembly, or air intake hose installed. I was lucky enough to find an air filter assembly part online, but I absolute can NOT find a hose that attaches to it! I've found one website that carries the right size hose, but they're seemingly always out of stock. it looks just like this:

Anyone that could provide some help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Welcome to the forum

Yes, finding original parts like these in good condition is hard, they tended to fall apart

Try Crown, they make these: https://www.crownautomotive.net/Jeep...ake-Tubes.html

Might find something that can be adapted
