water pump rad hoses

Postby moneypit » Thu Jan 01, 2015 11:34 am



I am changing timing belts, water pump, and hoses on the Moneypit during the great freeze here in the great state of Michigan . I know I saw on here somewhere the Napa # for the rad hose that you cut in half to make both upper and lower hoses if anyone can come up with the # It would be cool and what is the best water pump to buy I'm not sure so if any one can help I would appreciate it .

Those numbers for the hose plus more 1100 part numbers are listed in the reference section, should be right at the top of the list. It is recommended to use oem water pump. Saber cycle has oem pumps as well as water pump gasket O-ring kit. I used saber for my water pump rebuild, but I wasn't real fond of there main housing gasket, so I used oem. Have fun.

I just went to my local car parts store and asked them to find the best fit - they found a good sized hose which I got both new ones from for the sum of $12.00. Plus 4 new hose clamps.

I thought that Saber Cycles were a definite "NO NO" to do business with - no care, and no responsibility!

You'll see the hose (and the cut point) here: How to remove and replace your water pump.

And Saber Cycle most definitely does not have OEM pumps - their pumps are cheap Chinese knockoffs that will not last more than a few months before failing.

Also, do not use a Saber Cycle gasket kit - they are cheap Chinese knockoffs (sensing a theme here?) that are too thin, and will cause your gear position switch to not work due to clearance issues.

No No, please order from them, then write them a complaint. I'll furnish the popcorn.
