Rusted Coolant lines to Rear Heater Core on E-350 Also A/C lines

Is this dangerous? I just bought a 95 E350. It's got rusted metal lines to the rear heater core. They're almost ruptured. I'm guessing if the break, all my coolant goes out. This is bad!

So... what are my options?

Can I find these things?

If there is a 'pick & pull' place, you could go try to find some used lines off another van.

If not, maybe another member might know of a place or have some parts. Other then that, you might have to go to a Stealership and buy some 'new' lines.....

I thought the dealer ones were pretty reasonable.

I had to change them on my '94. The new ones come with protective plastic conduit to prevent rock damage from initiating rust.

Two words..........................

Heater Hose...

My 96 gasser had the rear heater tube go south, used good heater hose to make the patch.. and 2 years ago my psd had the same line go south... heater hose for the patch, then a short while later another spot went south(leak) and that out in the middle of fraken no where,, so with some extra hose that I had , cut the feed and return lines and looped it there with the hose, no heat in the rear until 2 weeks ago when I cut the metal lines just after the engine and ran 22' of feed and return lines to the rear heater and cut out all of the Ford metal lines... I used a plastic pipe to make the just from my bought hose to the ford hose that goes up into the heater.. works great and no worries about rusting out in the future...
