    Heater hose without nipples for throttle body heater

    I am looking for the metal pieces that normally have a nipple on them for a hose to attached to the throttle body for the throttle body heater. I have a 85mm throttle body and no longer have a need for a throttle body heater and would like a hose that doesn't have the nipples because right now they are just capped off and can leak at times. Does anyone have what I need or maybe even a part number for reference.

    Note: this is for a 1990 SC

    Thanks

    I'll have to post some pictures but cutting them off would leave a hole although I could put a piece of hose over it and just use hose clamps on the ends. I thought about pinching the nipples and having them welded but it would be nice to just have something factory as I know some of the SC's didn't have the throttle body warmer so it would be nice to replace it with something new and oem to solve the problem.

    Replied to your PM Tim.

    Here are some pictures of the caps with hose clamps I have on the hoses now.

    I'm sending one of these with your gauge cluster. The mounting bracket is broke off but it does not leak.
