LS conversion....need upper rad hose, passenger side.

Calling on resident LS guru's to help out......John, Don or someone else. Need a number on a upper rad hose Dayco, Gates, Napa, etc. that goes to passenger side inlet, needs to be 1.5" both ends. Pic shows basic shape.
Any help would be appreciated, tks.

Re: LS conversion....need upper rad hose, passenger side.

For the upper hose, the upper hose from a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse turbo AWD is almost a perfect fit.


I got this from Entropy radiator website (copy/paste). Its what I got and fit perfectly.

Thanks; that looks like what I need too !

Robert,

I looked up that hose and it's 1-5/16" ID.

We need 1-1/2" ID ?

That upper Mitsubishi hose did NOT work for me using an Entropy rad. I used the hose Don recommended. I think it was from a Lincoln. I will see if I can find the #.


UPDATE: DAYCO E72126.

Re: LS conversion....need upper rad hose, passenger side.

Thanks for all the suggestions.


Donny after I looked up the hose specs you suggested it says the hose ends are 1.25", I know that the the fit should be snug but is stretching a hose that much on a 1.5" rad inlet acceptable? Could you post a decent pic showing the hose installed, even at the ends, tks.

Upper hose is 1.25 ID and lower hose is 1.5 for the LS.

Water pump determines which hose will work. What water pump and accessories are you using?

Re: LS conversion....need upper rad hose, passenger side.

The Dayco hose is for LS3 crate engines. I think you will likely need that Mitsubishi hose for 4th gen F body accessories.

I used a 22358 hose, you will only use half of the hose.

Re: LS conversion....need upper rad hose, passenger side.

Guys, thanks again for the responses.
Don, I can't use the F body hoses because the factory rad inlets are 1.25" and I need 1.5".
I erred in requesting both ends needing to be 1.5", actually I need one end at 1.25" and the other at 1.5"
With the help of Dayco's website:
Online Catalog
On the left hand side is has a heading......dimensional lookup where I plugged in some dimensions and came up with 72341 that I'll try.

Bend up a coat hanger and take it to the part store to match up a hose. You may end up using only part of the hose you find
