Default 350 rad hoses

I have searched all day and cant find the answer. 95 yj with a 350 and an advance adapters rad( regular chev in and outlets) what applications should I be looking for, for upper and lower hoses. also if I measure right, the heater hoses are 5/8 and 3/4 right? I need applications because part # dont cross the border very well.

I was going to get THIS rad hose kit before I measured and looked at different hoses to see what would work with mods with my XJ small block swap.

Bend a piece of wire in the shape and length you need and take it to the parts store and find something close. Shorten or lengthen as needed, that's what I did for my Chevy 4.3 to jeep rad.

I did the wire thing and the application is as follows; upper hose is a 75-77 pontiac ventura-lower hose. the lower hose is for 97-2004 excursion 5.4l vin code L. A little trimming was necessary. but they fit great. 350 and advance adapters yj swap rad.
I sure hope this helps someone.

Awesome work. When I did my swap, I just bought the flexxy hoses that had the right size end on them... I may purchase the ones you found. Can we have a pic of them in place?

I would do anything not to use flex rad hoses.imho they put alot of strain on the rad. Ive seen more than a few copper rads cracked at the outlet and inlet joints

If I remamber right they are block hugger, but I am using aluminium angle plug heads.I got them from summit. my only 2 options for thes were raw steel or chrome ,I got the chrome. One thing to watch for is the collector flange is welded too close to the header pipe and the collector flange wont allow a nut above
