My import parts guy gave me a 3" piece of 44mm (1-3/4") which is what is supposedly called for, but it was too big. So, I just bought a simple (read cheap) hose and cut it to size. Its not at all hard to get to; just had to make a gasket for the thermostat housing where it bolts to the head.

DO NOT wirewheel corosion buildup off the areas where the hoses clamp on the t-housing. There could be serious pitting hidden under there, meaning that the hoses won't seal after cleaning. Ask me how I know. Sometimes, cleanliness is next to stupidity!
