nice quality.

June 23, 2016
the 4 inch x 1.74 ID rubber hoses that were supplied to connect the steel tubes to the upper radiator necks were 4 inches to short. The 4 inch x 1.75ID rubber hoses that were supplier to connect the tubes to the head inlets would no way fit my head inlets. I had to use 2 inch ID hose. 1946 Ford 1/2 ton with original 59A and original 3 core radiator.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The hoses were too long, but probably because I'm using them in an application they were not designed for (flathead V-8 in a Model A frame !) No problem!

I would buy this again. Very pleased.

August 31, 2012
The water outlet on the left side head is slightly closer to the radiator than the right side. So, the left side pipe needed a slight pie cut on the end to shorten the pipe and acheive the proper angle and not end up with a kink in the hose. Also had to shorten both right and left upper hoses about 1/2 inch. Other than that, this product is top notch. The hoses and clamps are high quality and look great. I've put about 30 miles on my 1947 ford since installing these hoses, and have had no problems or leaks. I'm very pleased.
Yes, I recommend this product.

measurements Do you have the rise and reach dimensions? I am looking for hoses for a flathead in a non-Ford vehicle with a '32 flathead radiator. I have center outlet heads. Overall would be similar to an A-V8. Thanks.

As these are shown in the picture the rise (top to bottom) is 10 1/2" and the reach (left to right in the picture) is 15". These measurements are to the centerline of the metal tube and do not include the hose connections.

SS hose kit to an Offenhauser aluminum head The hose ends with this kit are 1-3/4 inch but my Offenhauser aluminum heads water outlets are 2 inches. I can't stretch them on. Your hose adapters are 1-3/4 inch max. Can you offer any solution? I bought it all from Speedway. Thank you, Bob

We offer a connector part number 91073005 which is 2" ID an could possibly be clamped down to fit the 1 3/4" metal tubes. If you are not able to clamp that connector down to the metal tube then Gates offers a reducer part number 26392 which is 2" OD and 1 3/4" ID. Sorry we do not offer that Gates reducer but you should be able to get it from a local auto parts store that carries Gates products.

Hi, Can you please provide more detail regarding the top pipe bend? My radiator has straight 1 3/4" outlets and I can't tell whether your kit would work with them. Are the top bends such that a straight in connection to the radiator is possible? Thanks

Since my radiator outlets are closer than the 15" of these tubes I'd like to know if the tube diameter away from the formed ends is truelove 1-3/4". I would like to cut the end close to the radiator and use a bent rubber hose to make the connection there. Thanks

These tubes are made of 1 3/4" OD tubing and measure the same size the entire length. If you cut these shorter you will need to make a new bead to keep the hose from slipping off under pressure.
