Heater pipe and air duct routing BT7


Jedi Hopeful

Hi all,
I am re-installing the heater on my BT7 and I am struggling to remember the routing of the demist air ducting relative to the water hoses. At present I have the ducting going under the heater hose but it is all a tight squeeze (see photo). Does anyone know the correct configuration of the pipes and ducts?

That's looks like the way BT7 was run. See photos of my restoration. Looks like the hose passes under the right hand tube and over the left hand tube. I had replaced the heater hoses maybe 20 years ago so I can't be sure this is the way they came from the factory.
