Hmm, thats a good thought. Maybe the extra hose to hook it up isnt as good of quality as the factory hose on the engine, and could be collapsing. Maybe you could go from where you teed into the factory line with a really short piece of hose, and cut a really short piece for the cruise unit end too. Then connect the two with something rigid like a piece of brake line with the ends cut off.

I have replaced pieces of vacuum line before and used hose for hooking up air shocks, with good results. Ive also tried stuff that was more like washer fluid hose, and it wasnt worth a crap for vacuum use.
