    What lower radiator hose are you guys using for a BB/Hemi E-body?
    I have a Hemi with an aluminum radiator, lower hose is on drivers side. I bought this hose after doing some research but it sure doesn't seem to be right. I'm not looking for an expensive restoration type hose, just something that will work.

    I have a 383 with a stock 26” radiator and bought my lower hose from Roseville. It fits perfectly. Not sure on the hemi’s lower hose but call Roseville. They’ll be able to get you what you need. Make sure you reuse the spring in the lower hose. The new stuff doesn’t come with one.

    Im using part of a hose from a 5.9 truck and some fexi-hose from oreillys connected together with a pvc fitting and hose clamps. It doesn't leak. Yet...

    I believe it is. That curl helps get the hose around the stock filter.
    FWIW, I have a 26" radiator driver exit and driver side intake pump. I'll need to shorten it a bit as my Barracuda is an Abody.

    I bought the 60659 hose, haven't installed it yet but it looks like it will fit perfect. Thanks!
