Default hose adapters. rear radator plumbing made easy!!

ok guys here it is the solution for plumbing rear radiators. ive seen tons of ways to do do it. ehuast pipe being the most common. so i had a set made and have been running for a year now with no isses. the adapers are a hair bigger than 1 3/4 od on the large end down to 1 inch od on the narrow. then go to your local parts store and get the needed amount of 1in id heater hose. its very flexable and has all the necissary heat ratings.
so i had a bunch made to hopefully help everyone else. im not making anything off these just looking to hook the fellow boggers out
$18 each let me know what everyone thinks. heres a couple pictures of the adapters and them on my truck.

e-mail me with orders ive got enough for 25 trucks

now to add to this wonderful idea go to your local snowmobile scrap yard and find the 1" aluminum tubing they use for the heat exchangers they come in about 5 foot lengths on some machines. This works great and helps dissipate the heat too

Am I reading this wrong? The adaptor uses 1" ID heater hose? So I am guessing that the ID of the adaptor is about 3/4"? That is a huge restriction in your cooling system. I'm sure it works for a couple mud runs, but that severely limits your coolant flow.

i can run my truck beating the mess out of it for 30 min on a hot day before its starts getting hot stop for a min and watch the gauge drop back to 180 and keep going. ill get a measurment on the id of it. but ive got 6 or 8 trucks that are running them with no issues. i run a standard water pump couple others use electric. think about it you are moving the coolant to the radiator faster in stead of wasting time over working your pump to puts a ton of water through a big hose. water cools in the radiator not the hose. where do you want you coolant to spend its time?

ummmm, thats not how fluid dynamics work, but OK. You get more flow with an optimized ID, which is what the ID of the outlet of the water pump is. Any smaller of an ID is a restriction.

But glad they are working.
