lower radiator hose for down flow radiator
Okay got it put back together. The GM part # for the lower hose on the down flow (vertical) radiator is #343414. It has been discontinued for some time now. I looked everywhere I could think of with no luck what so ever. I took the hose to the local Auto Zone and matched it up with a hose from what I believe is for a Ford pickup. The part number is Gates # 71710. It is listed as being 1 23/32" i.d. The GM part is listed as 1 3/4" i.d. It is really tight but, it will go on. The shape is a little different but it seems to work fine.
