Small Coolant Hoses

Post by fnickel » Sun Mar 13, 2016 8:42 am

Anybody have a source for the small coolant hoses that run around to the thermostat, intake manifolds and carbs? The 5/16" or 7.9 mm hose is the right size, so I went out to try to find some. The easiest find was some SAE30R9 Fuel Injection Hose which is the right size. It also has higher temperature and pressure performance than standard coolant hose. But on further research, and talking to experts, they are saying that it should not be used in coolant applications, not compatible. Also, coolant hoses should not be used for fuel injection applications (obviously). Has anyone found easy sources for a good quality coolant hose that is the right size? I see that Gates has a wide variety of hoses and it sounds like the right one is part #28408 (Safety Stripe Heater Hose). I am located in Canada, and apparently Carquest carries Gates products, but I haven't been able to contact them yet. Any other sources? Thanks.
