Hello All,

I am trying to repair a model sterling engine. I need some flexible plastic tubing to join the connecting rods for both the displacer piston and the power piston together. I need tubing with an ID of 0.020in or 0.5mm. I only need like 6 inches to account for trial and error. Can anyone help?

Thank you!

McMaster-Carr part number 5335K12 is 0.022" i.d. teflon tubing.

If the tubing is located where it doesn't see much heat, you could slide the insulation off of a strand of telephone wire or any other small gauge wire you might have lying around.
