Hose hanger??

Anyone know if this is an original part or an aftermarket find? I've got my hoses attached to the support rod with a zip tie. Saw this and thought I'd like to upgrade if I knew what I was looking for.

Thanks

You order MEH 156 from Jim Carter--or another manufacturer. JC'S are real sharp---Bill

That one on Jim Carter's site is a "butterfly" type. Looks original. The one in the picture I found looks more like a C-clamp that's been rubber coated so no sharp edges. Anyone recognize where it came from?

That's not an original hose support. The one that JC sells looks like the original from my truck. The hoses route in the recess in the inner fender and a single screw between the hoses holds the clip down.

That looks like a hose clamp from a later model vehicle.

Sorry about the delay, I thought I had already posted the images, below.

They are the original-style A-D heater-hose holders for the inner fender.

All of my 1954 trucks had that style holder, zinc-plated/galvanized - not black.

Thanks Kevin and Tim. It appears that the piece you have on your trucks is the original way Chevrolet held the heater hoses in place. I always wondered why mine were just left to slide around. Never knew that my butterfly hose holder was missing. Anyway, since nobody has chimed in on where I can get a holder like in the pic I posted, I think I'll post a request of a butterfly type in the Swap Meet section. Maybe someone has an old one laying around they would part with.

Thanks!

Originals were likely cadmium plated like so many other silvery gray parts were on these trucks (like the hood hinges). Since cadmium is a sacrificial metal, designed to protect the underlying steel for a period of time (like however long it took to drive your new truck home from the dealer smile ), you don't usually see much of the original cadmium left after 70 years.

That far, eh? wink

Spotbiltxo, Jim Carter sells them (repop of the original). PN is in one of the posts above.
