GMPP Serpentine System need top Radiator Hose

Guys, I bought the GMPP Serpentine System PN# 12497698 with AC and I was wondering what top radiator hose fits best with this system? My car is a smallblock and has a Be-Cool radiator and stock fan shroud.

I havent tried it but saw a 92 camaro with a 305 setup that looked like it might work since the alternator is in thesame spot.

Re: GMPP Serpentine System need top Radiator Hose

If you can't find a regular hose the stainless ones coupled with a rotating neck on the intake work really well. They hold whatever shape you bend them into and they can be cut to size. Summit has a house brand which is made by Mr. Gasket.

They're pretty pricey normally but Summit had them on sale a while back so me and a buddy bought several for $5 apiece. I checked with him and he didn't use the ones he got since he just wanted to see if they'd work on the exhaust for one of his flatheads. If you want to try it, let me know and he said he'd give them to me.

Re: GMPP Serpentine System need top Radiator Hose

See if I can post a pic, 383 with same setup. Got them, one on the
left is with my new 468bb, one on the right was my 383sb. bb hose
would work with small block. Went to checker auto and asked for a
69 big block hose and trimmed it a little.

Re: GMPP Serpentine System need top Radiator Hose

Guys, the builder found the solution. He used a 1968 Firebird Small Block top hose assy. It fit perfect! Of course, I am sure it had to do with my non-clockable water neck, but I like it.

Looks Good, I had a time with those sleeves on mine. Thought I was going to cave in my radiator neck it was so tight. Did you have any trouble with yours?

Re: GMPP Serpentine System need top Radiator Hose

Dave, the PS hoses had to be fabricated to make the angles all work. I am using the super fast ration PS gearbox from Ground-up Part Number GBK-1SFF
