View Full Version : Not so good results with hoses on Friday

Well, things haven't been going too badly until today when the fitting of what I THOUGHT would be a good idea took place.

Actually, it's not the fault of the hose, but rather of the angles and length for the top. I was concerned when I saw how the radiator fit last night and we changed the outlet, but just can't get this top one to fit or look right in my mind.

So, I called Summit and found that they now have the same SS hose (which is reinforced high pressure oil or coolant hose) that I used for the heater hoses in the 1.25" ID needed for the radiator hoses. So they will be here by Tuesday and things will be all ready for them to go on. The key here is more the fittings than anything and I think that this newer smaller fitting as used on the heater lines and will be fine.

Two months ago when I ordered the others, these were not available, so now every line and fitting will match. I guess that after all of the things that I hoped would go right and did, I can't get too concerned over one thing that didn't.

On a positive note, the wiring is nearly done for the fan and the headlamps are ready to be installed, so we'll be pretty much buttoned up by Tuesday when the hoses arrive. At this point, waiting a few more days is nothing. :yesnod:

Gotta love Summit Racing. I got an email yesterday afternoon with a coupon that stated a $30 off on next order over $100, but clearly states must be used when placing order.

I had placed the new hose order three hours earlier (just over $100 by accident) before I got home and saw the email. So I call late last night and explain the issue. No problem, we'll just credit your card back tomorrow when the order clears as shipped. So I get a shipment notice with tracking and credit all at once. No hassles, no argument about technicalities, just good customer service.

These guys are very good with tech issues when trying to match parts that they don't list in their catalogs.

I figured it out. Your trying to outspend Dale.

No I'm not even close to Dale. Out of my league.

But I am trying to out-bling Kodanja!
