Vacuum advance hose fix with WD40 nozzle

Problem: On a trip home from North Wales, the vacuum hose in my GT6 came loose and fell on the exhaust, melting and fusing it. Nasty sluggish acceleration  resulted.

Solution: I had no tools besides a knife and no spare hose, but DID have a small can of WD40 in the boot. 

After cutting the melted ends off both pieces of the existing hose, and cutting a 30mm peice of the WD40 can nozzle, I softened the hose over the exhaust and pressed in the nozzle. A test blow though the spliced hose showed it would allow the vacuum advance to operate and all was well for the remaining 150miles home.
