Quote from: Jan S on 23 November 2021, 03:21 PMAs you know I'm just about to assemble all my new cooling hoses and new thermostat (6.9 engine). I also had to buy a new thermostat housing and cover. Still waiting for a few hoses, takes time to acquire all the stuff In the process, the thin 8 mm nipple at the radiator top broke (return to reservoir tank). Not unusual after 46 years. Will be welded. Removing the other hoses and thermostat was easy. Some of the hoses were a bit stuck, but careful wiggling from side to side did the trick (maybe apply a thin/flat screwdriver-type of tool to carefully loosen the hose from the flange at certain points). I would say the bigger inlets/outlets (38 mm on my car) are fairly strong, even after 46 years.
