Anyone know of a substitute for the thermostat hose that runs across the back of the radiator? 

Regards

Dan the OEM hoses were nearly indestructible very rarely do they cause trouble. What's wrong with yours?

Might give Repco/Supercrap a try- I don’t hold hopes high tho....it’s about a $50-odd hose from Munich What a Face

Tiniest pinhole leak you’ve ever seen. Just enough to weep barely a drip over a week....very annoying! 

On a plus note, all the body parts are currently awaiting fitting in a new flashy coat of Madison cheers

Regards

Dan

You could always try Chris and see if he is in a generous mood. It does happen occasionally.

Hi Dan,
I have a hose here if you want it. It is about 280mm long with a right angle bend at one end. The bendy bit is about 50mm long.
Just pm me and I'll be happy to post it up. It is the OEM hose but looks in good nick.
Cheers
Tom
