Anybody running those blue Goodyear coolant hoses on their bronco? I cant seem to find them at all for my truck which is an 86 or for any bronco at all. I tried the search and nothing came up.

Thanks
Kyle

I am, in an '89 on a 351.

I believe the set for our trucks was discontinued several years ago. You might find something on eBay. There are other sets that are close, but you'd have to piece together a set and that would be pricey.

Well, I thought they were. Took some manipulation, but this is the closest set I could find. IIRC, this was the set I used.

EDIT: This IS the set I used. Some minor trimming was required. If you pull the trigger, there are extra hoses, don't throw any of them out. I have found great uses for the extras.

That's a steep price tag on those. They really worth the premium? Never used anything but standard hoses myself but always looking for better stuff.

I haven't had a bit of trouble with mine. I had to buy a second set because I screwed up the 1st upper radiator hose.

What I've enjoyed is having all the leftover 5/8" radiator hose. It allowed me to refit another vehicle that has an optional radiator that had nasty hoses.

Mine have been on over 7 years.

Well $120.00 isn't too bad but I've read here they're really excellent guality so if you like them, have at it and enjoy!


Good Luck ~ :thumbup

Like this:






The upper radiator hose gets a little flimsy when it gets hot. I suppose if you twist it perfectly, it will stay up. The tie wrap keeps it up in case I lean on it.
