Vintage Ford Parts

30 year old 7.5 460.
What is a good site to get parts?
Example: Air intake hose.
It's kind of a rectangular hose and I cannot find a replacement anywhere.
I repaired what was there, but a newer one would be nice.

It's for an '87 Econoline 350.
LMC has the air intake for a Ford truck of that year and it looks the same as what I have. Just need to make some measurements to be sure.
Thanks for the info. It's really a big help.

Dryer hose? Are you really concerned with factory correct parts on an 87 E350?

Not at all. I already tried the dryer hose thing. The problem is that he engine is pretty well shoe horned in there. I fabbed the dryer hose to fit but it took up way too much room. The factory hose is rectangular, dryer hose is not. I ended up repairing the factory hose, which works for now.
I've done so much work on this thing I wanted something looking a little cleaner and that will at least last as long as all the new parts will.

I installed a Edelbrock 14x3 air cleaner on my 351, it just barely fits in my 1985 4x4 E-250. With the rear heater hoses and (at the time) air pumps and such, there was no reasonable way to fit or fix the factory hose.

I think it runs better with the Edelbrock air cleaner, but, that is subjective and not fact based. I do know when I change the air cleaner, I pick up .5 mpg! Sometimes I even hit 8 mpg! :-D
