FLEXIBLE RADIATOR HOSE INSTALL

Here we continue the build of our '64 El Camino project vehicle by installing a set of flexible radiator hoses to the transplanted late model LS-1.  This type of hose is offered by several companies but we chose a set of stainless steel hoses manufactured by Wysco. Not only are they totally formable but they look good too.

Please give us a call if you have any questions. 877-968-7842
 

These flexible radiator hoses come in 1, 2, 3 and 4 foot lengths. They include hose ends/adapters and hose clamps.

First, try to get flexible hose close to the shape you need.

Next, using a sharp hacksaw, carefully cut to length required. We put the unneeded end in the vise so the finished end wouldn't be distorted.

With the finished hose ready, find the adapters and reducers that will fit both the radiator and engine ends best.

Here is the finished piece installed. All we need to do is add the supplied hose clamps to finish the job.

Looking for accessories? 
If we don't have it, we 
can get it for you. Plus, we
install what we sell!
