Someone posted at some point in the past what radiator hose they used to connect the angled thermostat housing snout to an aftermarket aluminum radiator.

Looking for some ideas. something about a lower bronco hose? I could use some ideas, either prebent rubber or a nice custom hose...

thanks

I have a double pass radiator so mine is on the inlet is on the drivers side. I am using a chrome tube from a Vortech supercharger kit for a Fox Mustang. For the rubber pieces I used a Fox hose and cut what I needed. The clamps I am using are Gates Heat shrink.

This may not apply for you application but here it goes. I used a fox thermostat housing and a fox upper to help me gauge a hose for my upper. I stood in front of the wall of hoses until I found one that worked. It may or may not be from a ford truck. My radiator is wider than stock. That is why it may not work for you.

I used a lower hose for a 86-90 broncoII 2.9. for my upper rad. hose. I have a 90 degree thermostat housing and a stock width alum. rad. Here is the numbers and see if they will work.
