I just did a quick search of NPD catalog using "distrubutor vacuum line" and it came up with pages of lines and hoses. Or make one up yourself.

Any major auto parts store will carry the hose you need. You typically will purchase it by the foot.

Original on the 65-67 A and C code 289 was steel with threaded fittings for the distributor vacuum advance on one end and for the Autolite 2100 or 4100 on the other. If you still have the vacuum advance with the threaded port, get the steel or stainless line. If you have an aftermarket distributor vac adv with a nipple, use the rubber hose.

Or you could get a hose barb nipple and use the rubber hose.

. . . . or a combination of both!
I bend my own hard lines for both PCV and vacuum advance. Because it is all "aftermarket", I utilize rubber hose and molded ends to marry up to the nipples.

You're correct. Windshield washer hose is typically a much thinner wall tubing. There may be versions that could be used, but why not buy the correct stuff.

everything i find online are threaded metal tubes. i would get those if the ends on my carb or advance were threaded.
