My 71 Dormy is cutting out when coasting to a stop with air getting through the inlet manifold boots. I’ve got some standard replacement boots but no time to change them over before a trip with the family on Saturday. I can’t find any of the split boots in stock anywhere for a quicker changeover.

Would heat resistant tape or similar wrapped around the connection work or would this be too rigid and cause issues? I assume the original boots are rubber to give a bit of flex.

Thanks for any opinions!
