Hose Kits

Question

Two questions, but might be able to be solved as one. (i hope this is right Gav, if not, i will start a new thread in correct categories)

 

I am after a complete Heater Hose Kit for my 76 2+2, do they exist and where is the best place to get it from. 

 

also, is there a complete hose kit available anywhere? asking for a friend with a 77 2+2 (assume this is the same for my 76)

 

cheers

 

Ned

 

P.S. i have looked through the forum for Hose Kits, but cant seem to find one for my model, there are complete kits for 240's though

Just use generic hoses of matching diameter if the 240Z set - which AFAIK is the only type currently available - won't work with your heater.

The pre-moulded shape of one of the 260Z heater hoses on mine was impossible to match without kinking so I just cut it much longer and looped it around in a full circle, it's been like that for decades without an issue and is up under the dash where no-one can even see it anyway.

Be careful with hoses bought from the US as they can be LHD specific

ah right, yeah that would make sense for the engine bay, i would assume the heater hoses wouldnt be different though? 

 

now to also find the dreaded heater valve/c0ck

***Edit to this question+additional question***

 

1. Does anyone know where i can buy the exact shape/size heater hoses for my model? i want to replace them when i pull out the heater cock to attempt to rebuild it.

 

2. As mentioned above, I will be removing the heater cock to replace o-rings (if perished), I did notice when inspecting it, the little "outlet knob" on top does not have anything connected to it, should there be? I believe my zed had aircon once upon a time, really wish it still had it, but that's another post. Also, would I be correct in assuming I need to bleed all of the coolant to change the heater hoses & fix the heater tap?

Thanks, will do that. Do you know anything about the top of the valve tap?

Have just checked by feel, and there's no nozzle or knob or whatever on top, but in fact I could feel a shaped hole where some fitting could slot in.

My car is a very early '74, has quite a bit of cross-over with the late 240 so might have same heater box, and it doesn't have any luxuries or frills like A/C, so might not be a good comparison to yours.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
