    I have replaced the radiator with an aftermarket one which has the upper hose outlet on the opposite side. (now on passenger side) Does anyone have a part number for an upper hose that will work for this? I do not want to go with a "universal" hose. I also do not want to stand in front of some "parts man" that is trying to look this up by application on his computer. 340 engine, no AC.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well ...that's when you just go behind the counter and start looking through all the hoses on the wall for something that will make the turns u need.

    You could get creative and buy a hose adaptor tube/fitting, and then you can use two hoses that combined will make the turns.

    It is a Dayco #71281. One end of the hose has to be trimmed off but works great. Should be able to cross reference with other brands. Sorry for the delay. Had knee surgery Friday.
    Here's what mine looks like.
