I use Polipo 18 bar black hose, which is available all over (google), and very reasonably priced. Many folks use the "universal" convoluted radiator hoses, but I think they are quite expensive.

Have a look at the Car Builder Solutions website (below). They sell the various different types of coolant hose suitable for connecting your engine and coolant tank.

Here's a link: http://www.cbsonline.co.uk/category/...nt_Hose,b.html

All the best,

Default water hose

I looked about for hose for My Lister J and found some water hose in my local water garden centre. It is made for pond pumps, waterfalls etc. Also supplied clips as well. Various diameter hose available. Had no problems after 10 hours of running the J. George

Default pond hose

I have seen this flexi pond hose in various sizes but not what I want, as the outlet of the engine is 1"bsp (33.3mm) and my tank outlet is 35mm, the choice of hose sizes are either 32 or 38mm, has anyone tried to heat this stuff to enable it to stretch over a larger diameter and will it compress down to the lower diameter, I have some dpm hose but it is not happy with the a mount of double bend over a short distance 18"

Looking at the pond hose on the internet it wont stretch just melt when you heat it.

Hi
The best way to soften it is boiling water it works a treat

It is, but if boiling water softens it, its not really suitable for engine cooling hoses is it.
Heat resistant rubber hose is available in many sizes.
