Hello,

With reference to the rubber coolant hoses, are all of these still available ?? I have looked at Malbrads and note that they only appear to stock the upper and lower rad hoses.

It is a case of giving them a buzz or do I need to look further afield ??

Some of the hoses are pre-shaped, whereas others can be made from off the roll.

Any input, gratefully received.

Thank you.

Richard.

classicsiliconehoses.com do very good quality full sets in silicone. I can't vouch for their hose clamps though, I'd rather buy ABA or similar.

Yeah, go for a full silicone set, literally fit and forget about them.
No more burst hoses!
