Wedge List / Radiator Hose Rehash - Needed for TR8 / Carbed / A/C
« Last post by Bill on March 22, 2018, 10:48:55 AM »
Listers,



I know this string was running not long ago but I deleted it before I

realized I cannot find the hoses I might have bought 20 years ago

(LOL).B  Family is going on vacation without me so it is a 3 day marathon

garage jam to get the motor installed in my '80 convert.



Are there any stateside sources with upper or lower hoses still available?



Has anyone sorted an alternate, even if cut & paste, with part numbers?



Need to reseal the trans too, suggestions for gearbox seal sources?B  Do

they oftern leak at the main jpoint or just at the speedo cable hole and

output shaft?B  My clutch area was very dry so no issue there.



TIA,



Bill
