New coolant hoses? - 85 Esprit Turbo

Recommended Posts

Recently purchased an 85 Esprit Turbo with AC in the USA that was built to UK DOM spec.  Want to replace the complete set of coolant hoses, but cannot source in the USA, as federal cars were all piped different from the DOM units. And, the AC fitted DOM cars were even more unique piping.

 

Sent a few emails to Steve at SJ, but no reply.  Any suggestions on who to contact in the UK for a full set of these hoses?  All the silicone kits on Ebay look to be the wrong bits in their photos.

 

Thanks, Jerry

Steve can be a bit slow, but has always replied to me. Or, have a look on ebay.

I bought a set out of Hong Kong some time ago (said Samco but I doubt original) and just did a search on eBay. TT Racing has sets from $175 to $195 dependent on colour.

 

My set fit fine except for a minor mod for the rad hoses.

I replaced all the hoses on my 89SE, and then on a friends '83 turbo for about $120 IIRC.  Most of the hoses are available from NAPA, Oreilly's, and Autozone here in the states.

 

Take a look at this hose list.
