Q: Lower Radiator Hose for 1969
I have a 1969 350ci with TH350 and NO A/C. Just bought a lower radiator hose from Ames and it didn’t fit. It was a 1.5″ I.D. hose with a flare out to 1.75″ at ONE end. It didn’t fit for two reasons. For one, it was too long and didn’t physically fit in the car. For two, both my water pump AND radiator need the 1.75″ I.D. hose.
Anyone else ever have this problem or is there something wrong with my car?
Anyone know what size hose they use on their car or where they buy them from and what the Part Number is?
A: I just bought and installed a lower radiator hose on my 1969 350ci TH350 with A/C. The hose was the same size on both ends. Without measuring it I would assume it is 1.75 inches. The hose was not very long, I would guess 15-18 inches. At any rate, I picked it up at the local NAPA auto parts store. This was about the only store in Austin that stocked the lower hose.
