What they don't make a one piece formed radiator hose for this thing?
Just tell the guy at autozone the make and model and they will find it for you  8)  ::)


Nothing annoys me more than the guys at autozone asking me the make and model when I have already told them what I need.

It's a 1976 GMC motorhome : blank stares
It's a chevy 350 grafted into a bmw : blank stares
It's a vortec 350 in a boat: blank stares.
It's a (god forbid) Motorcycle :blank stares
It's a volksrod: WTF?


Just shut up and let me rummage around behind the counter until I find what I need.
Hahahaha.  Yep.  My Box Chevy is a motor out of an 87 Blazer, so it's really fun getting parts for it, when I don't just order from Rock Auto or Summit.  I often rummage through the back looking for hose bends.  That's how I converted the plastic tubes for my airhead air box to rubber.  This hose is as it came to me, except that I shortened it to move the radiator back a few inches and turned it for the new thermostat housing.   I changed the thermostat housing from an angled piece to a straight piece in anticipation of changing this radiator to a center port (or whatever you call that coolant outlet on top).

The tribulations of bias-ply tires. A cut on the inner sidewall got me a tow home. I believe the Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/R Radial is in my future.

Minor.  No dents, but a little bit of rash I was able to file out.  I was able to get myself down before the tire shredded and it pretty much kept them off the ground except when I had to turn.

Glad there was no major damage or injuries. I bet the tow driver had never seen anything like it!

Much thanks. He said he was telling his gf on the phone that he would be just a few. He was going to pick up a college girl in a “Beetle Bug” with a flat tire.

Well that sucks.
Can you patch the sidewall on a Bias?
I know another set's gonna get pricey quick, any bandaid until then?
