Need advice on finding the right lower radiator hose I have a 52 Chevy truck with a 1957 Chevy car 235 in it
I bought a new one from the truck shop in orange ca doesn’t fit can’t bend it when it needs to be.
Can’t return it I cut it to try to fit.
Was looking online and they all look the same as the one I bought from the truck shop
Was also looking at flex hose .
Anyone have any luck with local parts stores?

Measure both ends. Then take a metal coat hanger and bend the shape you want. Go to your favorite parts store and ask to look through their hose selection. Take your tape measure with you. Bet it won’t take long to get what you need.
