wanted radiator hoses

Post by lesg »

Hi there, does anyone have any rad hoses for a Mk 1 BX Gt as the mot tester has said they will need replacing in the future. After the problems I had getting a carb for it I thought I had better get in early and not wait until the worst happens. Many thanks for reading this post and look forward to any replies I may have.

Mk1 and 2 hoses are the same its just they vary depending on engine size.

A 1,9 carb rad is the same as a 1.9d

Thanks for the reply. apparently it's the 2 hoses that work the auto choke that need replacing as they have started to split slightly on the ends. He has refitted them and they are ok at the moment but as I have just had a brand new weber carb fitted I don't want to mess the settings up after spending a fair bit on getting it running properly. So really I would like to replace those 2 initially. If anyone knows where I can get them it would be most appreciated. Thanks in anticipation, Les.

..And the intake air filter box, the round metallic one has different upper hose than the one with a square plastic box.

I thought we were talking radiators? The hoses for the carb could be replicated with some correct bore pipe?
