Intake Duct

I just noticed a dent on my air filter canister.

It seems that the 7" ducting linking the canister to the air intake box collapsed where it has to make a sharp turn. The constriction caused a mild suction which pulled in the filter housing sheetmetal slightly, but no other damage.

An easy DIY job, but I can't find a supplier. Can anyone offer a suggestion?

Caterpillar C13, it ran wonderfully, despite being deprived of air

Additional Information: I believe the paint shop attempted to start the rig with plastic sheeting over the air intake.

As a result, I might be able to restore the ducting to roundness, reinstall.

But, a source for new ducting is still appreciated.

Call OEM. Google: 7" intake ducting. Take it off and straighten it out.
I had a bend in my intake hose due to it being too long. Shortened it and then reduced a little restriction.

I would pull the filter and replace it as that much vacuum across it most likly damaged it and you do not want to risk dusting the engine.
