16V engine in Suds

Anyone know of a standard hose that will do the bottom rad hose i.e. take it up and over the cam belt covers or does everyone just cut and shut?

Re: 16V engine in Suds

this from the donor car dorsn't work and must be cut.I did so in my Sprint, I use stainless pipe and it become perfekt. The hose from 33 is longer because the radiator is in different place.Look here the man tells everything what you must do

Thanks for that advice guys I guess I'll have to do the cut and shut with the hoses. I was just hoping someone had found a standard hose that did the job without the extra joint.

Re: 16V engine in Suds

Just in case anyone else wants to stick with normal brakes rather than switching everything over to 33 stuff I have managed to get a 16V manifold successfully modified to fit with inboard discs . Took a bit of time and some head scratching but not too bad in the finish. Turned out that outer / rear cylinder pipes clear the inboard discs and just the inners/ front need rerouting.
Cut the inner legs off about 75mm before they go into 2. Welded a straight section on, to run pipe up inside of disc, other pipe runs up disc outside. Elongated holes in manifold flange to give extra turn and cut pipe off about 180mm from head. Cut a bend out of the pipe that had been removed to give smooth rad bend between pipe from head and run down into manifold.

If anyone wants more detail let me know
