Anyone got about 75cms left over of what must be 15mm hose.. to go from header tank to turbo and from header tank to the other connection from water pump or block not sure which it is..

Just relocated mine and although the original pipes just about reach they are a little stretched and I would like the extra length to rotate the header tank so I can bolt it down better and more neatly.

I have managed to resist temptation to use some garden hose.. so far :D

Simon :D

Don't use garden hose... I did (for an emergancy) and it lasted one day before leaking...

Fortunately, I had acquired some proper hose by this time.

I've got a few cms of this hose left but I'll see what there is in the cupboard. (probably only 10 to 20 cm :( )

I had a look last night and I can't find anything that size. All the bits I found were a bit smaller - more like the coolant "overflow" pipes. Sorry.

not big enough diameter is it David?

between header tank and turbo and header tank and pump?

The other over flow pipes I have done using fuel injection hose...

I have plenty of the pipe you need, it comes in 2m lenghths with 2 jubilee clips 3.

I have udes it for my top wat4er to turbo pipe and am usinhg it to relocate my header tank to the washer bottle location. Am sure you know but the water feed comes up from the water pump to just behind where the aircon normally sits... This is an ideal take off point if you are locating to the passenger side of the car, rather than where it comes out by the drivers side fuel rail.

p.s. if you need any give me a shout

Thanks Tim and Rob.

Where do you get it for 3 Rob.. smile.gif

Yes I noticed the connections under where my air con was and have taken off that.. my header tank currently sits where the air con was. Due to using the original samco hoses whcih are a little too tight and the header tank is not in a position I can bolt it down.. cable tied for the moment, need to rotate it by 90.. I'll pop into Halfords and have a look.

thanks
Simon :D
