spare radiator hoses

Started by BCK1963, 07 March 2024, 03:32 PM



I intend to get a second set of large radiator hoses as spares.
That's where the problem sets in:

Febi told me that they cannot supply any of the two. offers a bunch of Febi 12151 hoses which are listed to fit on a 6.9.
Looking at photos of a 280 and 6.9 engine and comparing the upper hoses doesn't suggest that.

The upper hose is still available at MB for appr. 100 €, but I don't mind to save some bugs.

The lower hose seems to be a simple 90° angled piece.

Any 6.9 fellow have an idea or source?
The MB part numbers are 116 501 2282 for the upper and 2382 for the lower large diameter hose.
