Are you referring to nylon tubing?

If the vehicle has hard nylon vacuum line, the normal service replacement is rubber vacuum hose slid over it (splice). The nylon line is still available from suppliers such as AUVECO.

If the nylon line you need is the standard GM-style hard-line tubing, there are probably lot of cars in the junkyard with what you need. You can also buy new tubing at the auto parts store.

You can splice the hard line tubing with a section of standard rubber vacuum hoses, or most of the auto parts stores also sell a specific piece of line to use for splicing (its sold either under the Dorman brand, or the Help! brand of small parts).

I think the small pieces of hose they sell specifically for splicing have a slightly undersized inside diameter and are a little more rigid. That makes it hold the nylon line more solidly.
