Cruise Servo Vacuum Line

The cruise servo vacuum line on my '97 5.2L Laredo has broken and I found out the hard way that the elbows you can get from your local parts store will last around a month and then split apart as the fitting on the servo is larger than the elbows are designed for. Does anyone happen to know the factory part # for the line or just happen to have the elbow part of the line with enough vacuum line still attached that I can splice it in place that they would be willing to part with?

Mine actually broke and I was able to use some heat shrink tubing to fix it. Do you have the old one? Shall I upload a pic of what I did?

The old one was in the back seat, but it appears that one of my nieces thought it was a toy and is no longer there

I'll look again tonight, if I can find it then I can just use some vacuum couplings to fix it. If worse comes to worse, I'll call up my dad to see if he can at least get me a part # to look up online (don't want to rely on him to get it since we aren't on the best terms right now).

Some small diamater rubber hose would work also.

I found the piece of the factory line where it came out of the tee, using that a elbow from O'Reilly & some electrical tape (just to make sure it doesn't come apart) it is working.

I used rubber hose, not those elbows. I keep a few inches of it in my spare tire cover as a back up.
