I just took off the top hose which had been on there for a while. I cut it open in the middle and it looked like it measured 2 in inside diameter. I measured the gooseneck and it sure was 2 1/8 outside diameter.   It looks like it would be a tight fit if I try to go with 2 inches. I also have the correct 2 wire hose clamps that I'm going to use after this install. I will keep you all posted.

Ted,

My car had 2 1/8 on it but after I installed the motor I had leeks. After that I went with the 2”.  I think it might be harder to install the top hose using the 2”  vs 2 1/8 without unbolting the radiator top bolt. 

The actual OD of the gooseneck is 2 1/8” so 2 1/8 hose seems correct.

 Thanks Dave... I thought John Fain mentioned 2 1/8" at one point but Chet said 2" would work. I guess I will have to just take mine off anyway and see what might work best. Thanks for the Amazon lead.

Hi Ted,


I bought Black hoses from Napa.  There was a small white ribbon on the hose that I installed in an out of sight down position after painting with flat black.

FYI... I used 2" hose.  2 1//8 is a hair to big.

Chet...

All:

Looking for radiator hoses, preferably all black and wrapped.  Looked at Restoration Supply and it looks like only all red in the 2 1/8 ID size (I assume right size).  Any other sources?

Thanks!

Ted

Wow you have been very busy.  The fabricated hood and grill look Great !!  Where exactly is the radiator.  Is it behind the motor or behind the driver?   In any case.., will it get good air flow in the rear ?  It looks like it would be fun to drive.   What other cars have come and gone?  My second question is how do you find the time ?

Impressed,  Chet…
