RADIATOR HOSE SPLICERS AND REDUCERS
The hose splicers and hose reducer bushing shown are required when connecting hoses to the Chevrolet radiator. Assembled hoses are shown on the next page.
If you want to use your existing hose, and you can purchase hoses cheaply, Stealth Conversions sells a hose splicer kit for the 6-cylinder application which includes one short 1-3/8" brass hose splicers, one long 1-3/8" hose splicer and one 1-1/2" to 1-1/4" hose reducer bushing as part # DAT-501. Cost is $20, including shipping.
The 1-1/2" to 1-1/4" hose reducer bushing will stretch onto the 1-3/8" hose splicer.
The reducer bushing should be trimmed so that it overhangs the splicer by less than 1/4" so that it will not obstruct coolant flow.
Included in the Radiator Installation Package DAT-500, the Hose Splicers and Reducers kit is available separately as part # DAT-501.
