    I got the hose and fittings at our local Bumper to Bumper/ tire shop/ farm supply place. Castor is a small town so one store supplies many things. The hose is 1/2" double braid hyd. hose. The block 90* fittings have 3/8" male npt. on one end and 1/2" JIC. on the other end(part # JCM06-NPM08). One end of the hose has a crimped on fitting that has a 1/2" compression fitting to go on the original 1/2" aluminum pipe that was cut below the rad (GoodYear part # B2-FTM-0808). The other end of the hose has a 1/2" JIC. female swivel that is crimped on the hose (part # B2-JCFX-0808). The total length of one hose with fittings is 42" the other is 44". I had to remove about 1/8" of material off of the filter housing edge because of interference with the hoses at the 90* fittings. Leo
