  1. I don’t find the length of the ribbed hoses listed anywhere. I tried a 13L and they seem short. Tried a 16L flexible axle, they seem long. Changed out the pins when I tried that. Only longer hose in Yellow is 14, but I’d like to be sure.

    1. I’ve never built this module, so it’s hard for me to give you a precise answer.
      I would however say that you should not hesitate to order used 16L corrugated pipes and to cut them to the size that fits exactly your needs.
