Thermostat Short Hose

When you replaced it did you just buy something at the parts store and hack it down to size?

My local store did not list one.

You could, but if I were doing all the work to get to it, I would put the proper OEM hose on.

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!

Yeah, but....if you smear JB Weld over the now clean neck, it will seal properly.

Been there, did that, but now its not "clean"! Oh, well, maybe someday I'll find an acceptable cure for my OCD.
