I have a 69 chevy C10. Six years ago I installed an Edelbrock Performer
intake manifold. The Performer manifold placed the temp sensor in a
different location than stock. I changed the water outlet to the early
style that points forward in order to clear the temp sensor on the
manifold. I used a Dayco #70715 upper hose. Now here's the issue. I
recently needed to replace the upper hose, but it was difficult to find
a parts place that had the ability (or skill) to cross reference my
Dayco part number. I didn't record the application for the hose back in
97 when I did this. I though I would be home free by recording the
number. I finally found a hose at Pep Boys of all places. But I
anticipate this will be even more difficult in 2008 or so when I need to
change the hose again.
Can someone help me figure out the appropriate application to ask for so
that I get a hose equivalent to the Dayco 70715?
Here's the criteria -
- water outlet facing forward (probably pre 66 SBC)
- 28" wide crossflow radiator
- inlet on upper driver side
- 1 1/2" hose
I like to know what applications are like this so I can look them up and
see if they call for my hose.
Or if someone perchance has a way to reverse lookup Dayco hoses?
Thanks in advance for any help.
