I discovered today that the coolant hose that runs from the right side of the drain cock tee up to the conduit housing, (the one labeled as the conduit breather hose in the manual) has elongated itself over time and started rubbing on the back side of the radiator. The metal coil designed to protect the hose wore a hole in the radiator and now I have to have the radiator repaired or replaced.
So I thought I'd send out an advisory for everyone to check their radiator hoses so this doesn't happen to any one else. I also noticed a couple of the other hoses look to be almost double the size they are at the clamp, so I have decided I'm going to replace all my hoses.

At leasr 4 times per year , full coolant / hose check. I bought a blue set , ( other colors were available to choose from ) a year or more from Sean at Morleys Muscle , but haven't needed to install them yet.
