ST165 Radiator Hose Kit

Postby ViciousDelta » Sat Mar 07, 2015 3:22 am

So i thought i had found a super deal on some Silicone radiator hoses for my Trac on ebay. WRONG they show 3 different kits one for the 165 one for 185 and one for the 205. So i ordered one and it came today and the lower house can be made to fit but the upper radiator hose they sent me is like 7 inches too short. Looks like it might possibly be for a 185 even though its listed for 165 and sold as such. Kinda pissed, trying to figure out a way to make it work. :shrug: :bangshead:

As a side note. The hoses are extremely high quality for the price lol They are no Samco but they are still really nicely made and heavy duty.

How did you get that little tiny upper hose to work?

Silicone hoses are bad for coolant, they perforate water through, and slowly deplete your coolant.
