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:,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 is offline   Reply With Quote
