        We tap the top of the timing cover/WP in ours...that way you can use a simple AN fitting/hose end for the heater hoses. They can route right under the intake manifold on the car setup...helps hide it a little better.

        Have you seen the EZ clip AC hose . The hose is very flexible and smaller ,looks way nicer than the typical crimp style hose.

        Go to the local auto parts store and get a big hose with lots of bends that will fit your inlets and outlets. Cut off just enough to connect to the water pump and radiator and bridge the gap with a piece of exhaust tubing (or a nice piece of stainless tubing).

        I'm using a gates 21581 for the upper and 21256 for the lower. Both had to be trimmed. 05 truck engine and stock style radiator in my 73 duster.
