Hans answered the question! We are only using a few inches of the old pipe, and none of the rubber. For radiators that do not have adaptors screwed into the radiator, there are direct fittings that are pipe thread that will fit directly, but so far the 3 in the shop right now all have adaptors!
There are a number of permetations on this Rover design, so we are trying to make them as common as possible.

I have been repairing oil cooler lines like this for a while now. It is a good method. The trick is to cut the hose the correct length. I use odiker clamps and make sure the hose is a very tight fit. Also, test fit and start the hose in situ so the angles are correct.

It might be easier to supply the lines with barbs installed and supply bulk hose to be cut on installation.

I'll readily admit that these are probably overkill as far as materials. The assemblies are all crimped and the hose is designed for use in machinery that runs 24/7 repetitive motion.

Would these be able to withstand heat better than stock? how about compared to stainless steel braided hoses? Just curious because I had mine replaced on my Disco with SS braided hoses hoping to acomplish this.

The silicone fire sleeve would protect the hose from the radiant heat from the exhaust probably better than the stainless due to the insulating layer between the inner and outer diameters of the fire sleeve. The stainless stuff like Earl's and Aeroquip is good, but I believe it costs a little more.
We 've modified our original design to better accomodate the hose routing for ac and non a/c v-belt v8s as well as increase the inside diameter of the hose itself.
We've also come up with a different combination of fittings that will make the serpentine belt replacements easier to fabricate.
Thanks to everybody who has expressed an interest in this project. We will keep going to get it just right much sooner than later!
I've tried to zip the pix and send them to Chris, but that was returned.

Update: I've changed the configuration again and am awaiting the latest version. I have also submitted the serp belt design to Bill for layout. Not going to fill any Christmas stockings, but soon!

Actually, yes. I think I had mentioned before that an expected baby was going to interrupt all of the delicate plans for life that I had layed out, and sure enough, they did! Max Edward was born on Christmas Day, and both he and Andrea are doing great!

After several versions and trial fits, we settled on a design for the v-belt engines. The v-belt version is fitted and has been test driven some distance. I was trying to get Trevor Comb's D in to test fit the serp belt version, as we haven't had any 97s in the shop lately.

I am still interested in donor hoses to have a supply in the works. This should theoretically cut down the production time. I have 2 sets for serp belt, so my real immediate need is v-belt.

Pricing: Well, if I don't have to buy new hoses to cut up and fabricate, I should be able to offer a pair of hoses for about $215. I may just buy a set or two just get things rolling- I can't envision not recouping my "investment" just on employees Rovers!

Congrats on the Baby! I have the hoses from my old 3.9 if they are needed.

Atlantic British $62.95 Lower and $79.95 Upper for a '97
Did mine the weekend before last .

Don't put it off!!!!!!.......Mine were leaking at the fittings to the radiator, and the rubber was really soft.

I also replaced the power steering lines. The mechanical coupleing between the hose and the hard pipe was so loose that you could spin the hose holding onto the pipe with NO effort.

So while you are in there replace the power steering lines too.

My garage floor hasn't seen a drop for oil for a week now.

Cheers

Mike

Trevor, Massive Congratulations!! Sign me up for a set -- I can provide the fittings for an '88 rrc if that's of any help at all. My best to Max, Andra and yourself.

Congrats Trevor, good to hear M and M are both doing well. Sign me up as well for three sets (all 94's). I've got a couple of buddies here in the DC area that I'm looking out for as well.

Ya I cooked off my lines and had a nice little fire in the engine bay thanks to those cooler lines. Probably can count me in even though mine are brand new. Just depends on price.
