I have a 1968 Dodge Dart 270 SL-6, no AC, auto, fully restored . Cute car but original radiator hoses (top and bottom) started to leak at wire hose clamps. Off to NAPA and ordered replacements. However no coiled NO springs inside new hoses. The old springs very rusty and still salvageable I feel. Here is my question: Do people still use springs inside radiator hoses? New rubber in hoses not needed NAPA man said (nice cope out!). Compared to my 1992 VOLVO hoses, NAPA hoses inferior (no thickness, very soft, no interior strength), thinking about reinstalling springs again after rust removal. What do you think?? Great forum...great people...love my Dodge Dart!!
