I want to replace all the hoses along with the shady looking "[color:#FF0000]tubes[/color]" that run along the exhaust side of the engine and along the backside (see pic - marked in red)

Anyone know where to find these?

Yes, obsolete for years. If they arent completely corroded, wire brush them and put on a few coats of POR15. I have heard of a few people making replacements with copper pipe and 45deg and 90 deg pipe couplings.

copper & solder will suffice and hold up over time, heat and pressure?

I did see some one having them professionally recreated for $400.. way too steep for me but they looked factory made, very well done.

Copper / solder will hold up fine.
