Cool bit of trivia. The plant I used to work at in Belle Plaine, Ia made those tubes up until 2004. That is when our records (that plant recently merged with this one) show that they scrapped the check fixtures and tooling. I checked inventory and there are none on hand. Scoop it up guys, there will never be any more of these made. We could probably bring the old program into the tube bender and the flange, shield, cup and screen are still used on other parts but the bracket and baffle dies are long since scrapped. Lemme know if you need a new o-ring though, we have thousands of those still. lol
Oh, and if anyone needs a tube for the new 5.0, we are making those. I measured six of them a month ago.
