I know, I know...it's been covered to death. I'm throwing a S/C radiator into my Bronco and after reading thread after thread, I couldn't find a PN for the new upper hose used. I know some guys said it was a straight drop in and others had to get a new upper hose. So any of you that got a new upper hose, do you mind disclosing the part number and what store you got it from if you don't mind? Thanks.

Pretty sure it's the lower that's different.

I think you want the one from a 79 F-250 2 wd.

Like Rob says, I had to trim about 3/4" from my top hose
when installing the supercooler. The part no. for mine was
for the supercooler, but I think the same hose is used for
both radiator applications, therefore it's longer (to fit the
smaller radiator too).

You guys mind telling me which end you had to trim from? Was it the radiator side or the water neck side?



I know...now I'm just being greedy, but I'll take all the free info I can.

I trimmed from the radiator end.

Actually I tried to install the hose without
trimming, and it tended to buckle at the
formed curve in the middle. I then cut the
end off a bit, and it fit perfectly.
(I don't like to modify brand new parts...:haha)

Alright another newbie question for you guys...this is running to a 460 correct? I'll be running to a 400. That'll make a difference on the waterneck side right?

Good question.
SC is an abbreviation for SuperCooler, which is a larger and
higher capacity radiator for our trucks and Broncos.
