        Dayco 70825? The hose in my photo is a very popular one and reaches around the A/C compressor i believe.

        You will need the correct thermostat housing. Probably not the one that exit's straight up but at a angle.

            Wow, the simple A/C hoses mentioned above don't look anything like the one on the red 65 in the sale ad. I wonder if I have any photos of a A/C 273.

            This hose is used a lot but with the newer style thermostat housing. (not the cast iron one that is angled)

                Interesting. I have seen 3 different t-stat housings and they all take different hoses.

                  I think the gates hose is the one you want. 20168.
