Coolant and brake hoses


Recommended Posts

Hi All

Having just officially rejoined the club I'm feeling emboldened to ask more newbie questions.

As well as the fuel hoses I already asked about, I'm thinking the coolant and brake hoses on the 1980 2.0 CIH Coupe will probably need replacing too.

I've ordered the parts fiche to enable me to (hopefully) identify the parts I need, but while I wait for it to arrive, I'm wondering whether anyone has a link to anywhere supplying any of these parts.

Also, if anyone fancies posting or directing me towards any tips on doing this work, please go ahead!

As always, thanks in advance

hi. so long as you dont want the silly silicone coloured hoses then the standard rubber ones for the radiator always seem to be available on ebay. the heater hoses are shape formed and are harder to find but to be honest the hoses are good quality  anyway and if they are ok i would personally leave them alone.no harm in removing them all and cleaning the ally stubs and fitting new hose clamps .flushing,new thermostat and antifreeze.(blue is fine ,1/3 mix)

brake hoses again are freely avaliable on ebay .there are a few different styles dependant on age and caliper type thou !


happy tinkering.
