    If you have not been scared enough to change your Pesky Heater Hose yet, this is what mine looked like at 110K

    It was not that bad to change, due to the wealth of info out there. Maybe two hours and I didn't use the hoist. The hose was leaking and saturated with coolant. I can't imagine it would have lasted another 5000 miles.

    :eek: :eek: :eek: Thanks for the "kick in the butt" to get mine done. I bought a chunk of hose 2 months ago, but with locker conversion homework, I let it slide. I think I better go take care of mine first thing Sat. morning. Thanks for the motivation!!!

    5/8 high temp silicone. $6.00 per foot and I bought way too much because i replaced all the heater hoses with it. Turns out none of them are very long. I still have about 3 feet if you need some.

    there is a similar short little hose between the water pump and the block on a 460 Ford bigblock...when they look like the pic Christo posted, it's a bad sign...

    it's worse when they burst on the freeway on a Sunday at 8pm of Memorial weekend in Pennsylvania... :eek:

    ...fortunately, I carry spare parts...
