Where to get this hose?

I have a tapered hose on the raw water intake to my John Deere 6068T. It goes from 1.25" ID to 1.5" ID and is 2.5" long. Does anyone know where I could get a replacement?

It looks like this

That looks like something from the plumbing section at the hardware store. They have reducers in various sizes.

"Reducer" - that was the word I should have been searching for.

Rochepoint - that would seem to be a good choice.

Thanks!

Had one on my northern lights generator. I would try a marine engine shop that deals with JD or northern lights. I am sure it is a simple part to find.

Have 2 similar hoses on my 4045 John Deere. Recognizing that they would be tough to find when cruising, so I bought a spare of each from the dealer. Don't remember them being outrageous price wise. Sometimes it's just better to buy the smaller items from the dealer and save the time looking.

I just bought some similar end caps for my JD4045 oil cooler from this company.

You can buy Silicone reducers here for about $10 in lots of ID combinations. Since they are designed for Automotive Turbo use, temperatures shouldn't be an issue...Their quality is excellent.

Thanks everyone - it looks like there are a couple of places to buy these online. I'll get a spare since I can't just cut one from stock hose.

Much appreciated

Richard

Yup! I have had considerable success matching changes in angle and diameter this way. It largely depends on the experience and attitude of the guy/gal behind the counter.

I did go to my local NAPA yesterday and the guy took me back to look at what they had. Unfortunately nothing was suitable. I'll be ordering online today.

Thanks
