New rad hoses

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Keep contemplating buying new hoses for the mk1 tina, and then promptly forget, 

However yesterday my dad's ranchero top hose split whilst driving home, making me remember, so before I forget again any recommendations? I quite like the blue silicone hoses 😯 I no I'm in the minority lol, but can't seem to find anyone selling them?

Mine has ones from the club, 5 years old and 1000 miles on them and they are toast, jubilee clips torqued to correct setting, so not overtightened, hoses have cracked everywhere, possibly l had a bad pair ??? Anyone else had similar problems with there hoses??

O yes, they are not the best quality, I have experienced the same. Had a urgent need for a set a couple of weeks ago. This time there are no (what do you call it) reinforcement wires in them, have fear that they will go baloon if hot.

 

I have come across a company in Taiwan that make REALLY nice hoses in small series, smallest order is 20 units. I am collecting NOS hoses and will go forward with a order to them in a near future when I have a full set of hoses. Will do all for Mk1 and Mk2 eventually.
