Hi everyone,

 

I'm changing out the heater control valve in my car and possibly the heater core while I'm at it. I want to replace the hoses since there's a good chance that the current ones will crack or break when I remove them. I've been trying to source new ones and I can't seem to find the whole set anywhere. I was going to buy 2 of the 3 at Black Dragon but after checking their diagram and my car's setup, they seem to be different so I'm hesitant on buying from them.

 

Not to mention a lot of them are fairly pricy... I'm not really looking to pay $70 for a few little hoses. Do I need the shaped hose? Or could I use some unshaped hose instead?

 

And if I need the shaped hose, can someone point me to a place that sells them for a reasonable price?

 

EDIT:

 

For clarification, the hoses pictured here are the 3 I'm looking for:

Thanks.

I had been having trouble locating the under-dash heater valve hoses for my '75 280Z. I finally took the hoses to Autozone and matched them to hoses they had in stock for $15. The right angle hose is Dayco #A70001. Your hoses look a little different but might have luck matching the others like I did.  My write-up is on http://www.cowtownzclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=104

 

I hope this helps,
