So the Princess split a heater hose on the way home tonight. Its the preformed one that comes out of the thermostat housing and attaches to the solid pipe that runs behind the dizzy. Does any one know the part number and or the best place to get one in a hurry. Local to Brissy for pick up if possible. Now her shiney white engine block is covered in green coolant.

Gates does generic z formed hose that you can usually bend or cut and rotate and join into most any shape.  Its always on the shelf at sca.  Unless its a gentle bend, you can just use the straight hose, it has a natural arc to it.

Supercheap seems to have its own branded hoses on the shelf now as well as gates.

Im very wary when companies come out with their own  brand of stuff.

Like repco branded bearings....

Thanks boys I will hit SCA on the way home worst case I will get a bit off the roll and bend it to suit until I can track the proper one down. Fingers crossed she hasnt popped a head gasket.

Hi Graeme,

It is sorted for the moment. I got a hose at SCA that was basically a straight bit with a bend at the end. To fit  a commodore I think. I chopped it down to fit and installed it. And away she went. I will now start looking for the correct one as it is astetically unpleasant to the Princess.
