I swapped a ‘81 FJ60 2f into my 1971 FJ40. During the swap, I also replaced the radiator with a CSF radiator for a 71 FJ40.
My issue is that I cannot find a lower radiator nose that fits. I’m trying to use the FJ60 metal pipe, that bolts to the fj60 passenger side motor mount bracket.

When I try to bolt the pipe to the motor mount bracket, I can’t get the lower hose to line up. It appears to need some kind of offset hose.

I’m sure other people have dealt with this before. What hose did you run?

I appreciate the help.

A bunch of google searching netted me with this lower radiator hose, for a 81-83 FJ40 with an oil cooler.

What do you think the chances it will fit between my 1981 FJ60 pipe and my 1971 FJ40 Radiator?

The FJ60 tube looks very much like my 79 FJ40 factory AC with oil cooler tube. My lower hose looks like above.
