How to prevent a kinked (flattened) radiator hose?
Posted 26 January 2004 - 01:57 AM
What is the solution to getting the hose to stay fully expanded and not restrict flow by collapsing at the bend?
This particular hose has one of those "spring" things at one end, which is helping, but where can I get another "spring" for the other end?

I have one that is about 10inches long for the lower radiator hose in my desert camo 6inch lifted brat.
Just thought I would add my expierence.

Napa has a book with pictures and end sizes of all the hoses we sell. I've cobbled together stuff for people who have done some bastardized things to their vehicles (Chevy PU with a boneyard diesel's radiator was the worst). Just find someone who is willing to actually work instead of give you cr*p like "we only list by application"

Partsman is correct about getting a parts person that knows how to open a book. I used to do parts years ago. a dificult job with plenty of stress.
