I was about to buy the stainless upper and lower radiator hoses from FFR but am wondering how they works together with one of those inline filler caps. Would I have to cut the stainless hose? Is this possible/advisable? Thanks.
I just bought some stainless steel radiator hose on ebay. The lower hose will be 36", the upper will be 36" as well. I have to split the upper into 12" and 24" to use my inline filler, so yes you have to cut into it. I believe the ones from FFR are 48" with 4 end caps in the kit. You will have plenty enough to do upper and lower if you get 2 kits. Hope this helps.
What did you get them for on ebay if you don't mind me asking? Also is 36" definitely long enough? I looked on ebay a few times but that savings was so minimal I was planning to go with the ones from FFR. Thanks.
Re: in-line filler necks, avoid the cast Moroso POS. It leaks like an 80 year old man after a night of drinking. I switched to the billet CSI piece from Jegs. No more leaks...like a Depends for the the 80 year old man.
JB, the hoses are both flexible and easy to cut. I bought 2 hose kits. The short kit I used to come out the manifold and into the degas tank. The long kit came with 4 hose ends. I used that to cover the lower hose and the stubby hose between the degas and the top of the radiator. Here are some pics:
