    Ive got a waterpump that sends the lower to the right side, Ive got that figured out, My upper is an issue, was running a universal flex hose but its starting to kink, I tried a 55091 upper that is universal and has a 90 degree at the T stat neck but its too long and I dont want to trim it down to the corrugation, anyone have any thoughts on a upper hose part number that attaches to the radiator upper left ?

            My upper hose is from NAPA. I don’t know if this is the P/N but it is stamped K23C0AG.

                I ordered an upper for my 383 w the 22" radiator, and same thing, it kinked and wouldn't fit correctly. I finally lucked out and a guy had one in his shop, it was dusty, no visible #s, but fit perfectly.
                Hope those part #s from Garrett and Customs work.
                If not, You may need to try an assortment of trial and error.

                        Dayco part number 70975. (pics above)
                        Its listed as "cut to fit", not universal. Just trim ends, as needed.
                        Went thru a sack full of upper and lower hoses to get a good fit.
