    Do any of you guys know off hand the inside and outside diameter of the heater hoses, and know of any resources for getting OEM hose clamps?

    TIA-

    I've used 5/8" diameter heater hose found at the local hardware store for some of the straighter pieces.

    I wouldn't know if it would work on the really curled pieces of heater hose.

    But anyhow, the 5/8" hose fits snug. I think I used 1 1/4" hose clamps. Don't use the OEM hose clamps. They're pretty bad. There are many better aftermarket ones.

    Most are 5/8", but two are 1/2". I think the ones from the split for the rear heater to the front heater core are the 1/2" but I would have to look again. I didn't have any and used 5/8", had to realy crank down the clamp.
