Does anyone know if you can get a 4 inch rubber 90 bend that’s shorter in length by this I mean where the distance between inlet and outlet on it is smaller I’m after a couple to fit in a tight space the ea ones I have are about an inch too long when put together with just enough pipe in between so they fasten together with inlet and outlet facing opposite directions

Dave ,try one of the dealers who support the club.

Many now buy alternate flexible fittings to ea as they are much cheaper.

Fiveacre at Chesterfield are very good and he is a sponsor who sells lots of alternative fittings .


give him a ring he only opens mornings on Sundays.

If you are really struggling get a shallow 90 degree black plastic bend and fit flexible 4 inch straight couplers to either end. That will save you some room Dave
