    hey guys

    used that multi fit hose from repco>< it leaks from the top and bottom, even with the hose clamps on to the tighest. I even snapped 1 hose clamp lol. Can anyone suggest a hose that will fit without cutting it?

    cheers

    i looked 4AGES (get it, lol) and couldn;t find anything close to what i needed, so i did what everyone does and used two bends joined in the middle with lots of hose clamps. works fine, leaks a tiny bit but most of my coolant lines do.

    Leaking coolent lines???

    Use gasket sealer when attaching hoses, its oily and will help you put hoses on and when it dries you get no leaks

    Some ADM jap cars and most popular imports use smaller hose/inlet/outlet sizes then aussie cars, did you pick up the right size?

    I had that problem when doing my lines

    also, it looks like thats a similar position that your housing would have been in the 4ac, why cant you just use that hose or get a brand new one of the same type?

    Make up a pipe that fits out of some old bends and straight pipe sections all hose clamped together. Then when you get keen take this down to Repco/Bursons/wehrever and find a rad hose from another car that matches.
