I'm trying to figure out if I need to order hoses for a 69 351 with a 24" radiator so I will get the correct hoses or if there is a different route I should go. Most all hoses I look up don't tell you what side they route to. Does anyone know which hoses I should get? The Autolite concours hoses would be nice but I don't have to have them, just would like to get past this hurdle. Thanks

If the radiator you have is a 24" drop in replacement, I think the 69 351w with 24 inch radiator hoses would fit nicely. If not than just return them.

69 351 W motor will have the bottom radiator connection exactly as all 67-69 small blocks, on the passengers side. Your 67 will have a passengers side.
So, you have a 67, order 67 hoses.
MAKE sure you have a 69 Windsor. 70 are opposite, drivers side.

My engine is actually a 1995 but I transferred my 69 351w timing cover and pump to it. The radiator in and out are on the passenger side. Thanks for the info.

Since you are using the 69 configuration, go with the 67-69 setup. You can put the 69 24" radiator in your 67, but of course you'll need the brackets. There will be no holes for them, since the car is a 67, you'll have to drill the lower holes.

Strictly speaking, the 67-70 cars were almost identical under the hood. The 1970 differs in that the lower hose was moved to the left side.

That's the route I am going, I have a 24" radiator coming later this week. I have a shopping cart full of parts at NPD just waiting for me to pull the trigger, the brackets and rubber isolators are in the cart. Thank you
