Alert Radiator Hose Help

Hello

I have my on going engine project in my 67 FastBack. I have a passenger side water pump outlet with a radiator that has the lower outlet on the driver side. Does anyone know of a lower hose to accomadate this connection? I would hate to change the water pump or radiator unless I have no other choice..

Thanks to all

Lewis

ArmyMustang67,

Look at the 1970 Mustang I may be wrong, but I thought it had a lower hose that is on the driver side (Big Block maybe?).

I have a 65 that has a driver side lower hose because it is an early 5.0 (1983) but it does not have the reverse rotation. I just went to Autozone and asked if I could go in the back and look to find something close and I did, and cut it to fit.
If you do this then be sure to save the hose number incase you have to replace it later.
I would give you the number of my hose, but the radiators in a 67 are slightly larger and I'm not sure it would work.

Good Luck and don't give up looking!

I am willing to try it. The hose clamps will fix up the difference. I just dont want to take off the water pump or change the radiator out.

It would work. All 65-69 289/302/351 used the same lower radiator hose.

His problem is he has a 1970 radiator, (or maybe a 6 cylinder radiator) which had the outlet on the LH side.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

22 GT, I know it wont work with the original type of hose. I made the mistake of putting a staggered radiator with the original style water pump. Some say I should have put a driver side water pump outlet. I know Scott Drake carries a chrome on his catalog.
