Silicon radiator hoses

I have searched and searched but I cannot find a set of silicon radiator hoses for my SBC '67 with a 22.5" core Griffin radiator. I just need a make and part number. I am OK with a little trimming.

Thanks!

Re: Silicon radiator hoses

I would use beveled inner sleeves on the hose clamps if running silicone hoses. Summit and other places sell them

The pic, assuming link is what Op gets, shows regular clamps. Those cut into silicone easily

https://www.amazon.com/Silicone-Radi.../dp/B016UJL8I2

Clamps have a inner liner. I got a set on Summit which had beveled edge liners. Some are just flat like these

They should be available from several sources

I played with some of those before tearing everything down just to see & learn them first hand and I will definitely be using them once everything is back together.

Re: Silicon radiator hoses

Curious why folks would prefer silicone hoses. Could someone educate me.

Thanks,

Re: Silicon radiator hoses

Ricers do it all the time. Guess because they want bright colored hoses

Re: Silicon radiator hoses

Easier to clean and shine up well for showing off too!

They hold higher pressures, they break down at a higher temp than rubber (350f vs 250f)

Reusable, will RnR better than rubber

And the #1 reason is my multiple national SCCA championship racer/builder brother who built my motor and makes all us other Hoover boys feel like street rats suggested it!


Plus it's super pretty

Thanks guys!
