Related to my previous post. It failed emissions, here is why the EGR tube has been weld shut. I guess someone tried to remove the tube the flare nut to the exhaust manifold gave out.
Thanks for your inquiry

You may luck up and find one. But I think your best bet on a replacement is to go to a local hydraulic line maker that can bend hard lines. Take your end connectors and old pieces and they can get close. You may need to take measurements from center-to-center in the X, Y, Z planes. This will help them design the tube better. If you want to give me the dimensions I can make a cad drawing for you. In the event that you don't have the time and you could purchase a flexible egr tube! I don't know what the thread sizes are, something oddball I'm sure.

Also, looks like the threads broke in the exhaust manifold. That can prove challenging to remove but take your time, clean it up and soak it with penetrating oil and if you have to use heat. A machine shop can get it out for you, or re drill the hole for helicoil.

Thank you for your feedback. Yeah definitely a machine shop can re-drill it. I am shopping around they charge kinda pricey.

Why not make a steel braided line for it! That would fit the bill! Better than propane flexible steel line...
