Cracks or damage to your engine radiator and heater hoses can cause coolant leakages, engine overheating and engine damage, so it’s important that any faults are fixed quickly if you need to continue your journey.
On modern vehicles, damaged moulded rubber hoses are a real problem and if an exact replacement part is not immediately available, then the vehicle is going nowhere.
New and available now from Connect Workshop Consumables is this professional hose repair kit (part number 33200), that features a comprehensive selection of straight hoses, right-angled hoses, pipe connectors and hose clips. A heavy duty pipe cutter is also included so that the hoses can be cut to size, pipe connectors added as necessary, and the repair section joined to the existing hose once the damaged portion has been removed.
Straight hose sections supplied: 2 x 400mm long, 16mm ID (internal diameter); 2 x 400mm long, 20mm ID; 2 x 400mm long, 25mm ID and 2 x 400mm long, 32mm ID. Ninety degree bend hose sections supplied: 1 x 200mm long 16mm ID 90°; 1 x 200mm long 20mm ID 90°; 1 x 200mm long 25mm ID 90° and 1 x 200mm long 32mm ID 90°.
Four pipe connectors of each size are supplied: 16mm, 20mm, 25mm and 32mm and eight hose clips of each size are also supplied: 16-27mm, 20-32mm, 25-40mm and 32-50mm. All the kit contents are also available separately.
The ideal solution when original replacements are not quickly available and essential for breakdown recovery operators and general vehicle workshops.
