On some engine swaps, getting a molded radiator hose to fit your particular
application can be impossible. We often cut and splice different sections of
radiator hoses to fit a swap.
For example, on S-10 Truck and Volvo V8 conversions, we cut and splice an upper hose from a Ford F-150 truck to make the lower radiator hose shown above, which uses a hose splicer
(or Tee) and a hose reducer bushing. Hose reducers are available at auto-parts
stores. Stealth Conversions also stocks hose reducer bushings. Cost is about
When splicing hoses, make sure the connector has beaded ends to securely hold
the radiator hose. We cant tell you how many times we have seen hoses
slip off of hose splices made with smooth pipe or tubing.
Make sure the hose is flexible enough to allow for normal engine movement without
putting stress on the radiator fittings. Beware of using metal tubing with short
pieces of rubber hose at each end to connect to the engine and radiator, as
seen so often in car magazines. The short pieces of rubber hose do not allow
enough flexibility for normal engine movement, and will eventually cause radiator
