I've just bought a new set of red radiator hoses.
All wrapped up in the same package they measure 3.5", 4" and 4.5" long. The top one will be attached to a Brass radiator.
So, which length hose goes where?
Thanks & Cheers,
Rob

One hose is slightly larger in diameter and fits the cylinder head to top radiator tank. This hose should be the longest one.

The other two are smaller in diameter and fit the block - to pipe - to lower radiator tank. Both of these hoses are generally expected to be about the same length. They may have been cut a little sloppy.

All the red rubber hose kits (sold in the USA anyway) come from the same manufacturer.

The outlet hose is 2" diameter and was 3-1/4" long during the brass radiator years. The length changed to 3-1/2" with the black radiator and was lengthened to 4" in 1919.

The two inlet hoses are 1-3/4" diameter and was 2-3/4" long during the brass era. They varied in length from 4" to 4-1/2" during the black era.

The hose of the bottom of the radiator will often need to be cut to the proper length to ensure clearance for the timer rod.

I had to cut the bottom hose to make it fit correctly on my 26 rpu.Tim
