What's this hose called?

Postby Justsomedude » Tue Jan 09, 2018 9:06 am

Hi all, I was in the process of replacing ALL my water hoses but apparently the kit I bought neglected a couple.

Can anyone identify what this hose might be called? It runs from the back of the engine with the heater hoses etc to the block side of the thermostat housing.
It might be listed as 'bypass hose' at a guess so far. I've been scouring eBay etc looking at hoses but the images on there don't help much sometimes!

It's got two right angles basically, one on the x/y axis and the other on the x/z axis so 2d pics make it tricky for a 3d hose!

Thats the hose that caused one of the 2 tow homes in 19 years in my old bighorn. I replaced it with straight hose. I see a springon your hose suggesting it has been replaced. Reusing the spring will stop it kinking
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

I'd order a new one if I could work out what it's called!

I've only just bought this MU and thought I'd do all the hoses as insurance, glad I did too, the main bottom radiator hose was completely shot - I reckon a stern look and it would of popped.

Thanks Andy, got me searching eBay with different terms. Came up with this - which looks a lot like it - has the two bends in what looks like the right place and about the right size.
On eBay it's a 'Gates 18799 Molded Heater Hose'
