AN12 as heater hose?

Heater hoses for the Chevy small block are 5/8" (0,625") inner diameter. AN12 is 0,69".
Would it be ok to use AN12 hoses as heater hoses?

Aeroquip makes heater hoses as well as the a/c lines. Also, Gotta Show (http://gottashow.com/products/ac_and_heater)

As Vince said - expensive

It looks like you are just using the braided hose with clamps - might be too big then for a good snug fit. If it fits snug, why not!!! I made up something of my own using the compression fittings and clamps along with regular 5/8" heater hose - but I had just run out of car $$$ for more AN line(I retired). This will be corrected eventually:



Also pulled the a/c as being useless in a roadster

You roadster guys never fail to amaze me.!!
What's the difference between running around half frozen with the heater on and running around half baked with the AC on??? haha

I love my coupe...heat/def/ac ....t-shirt all the time.

Go a head and use AN stuff. I use Push Loc AN...don't need hose clamps at all.

I use the heater so I can uncurl my frozen fingers from the steering wheel on days like when I last drove the car, Dec 6 with snow flurries

No wonder you need an AN-12 (Norway) ....Is that enough??? haha
I would guess the car is built around a heater rather than installing a heater in the car. haha

I use AN-10 (5/8" od) Push LOc with good quality hose, not braided just premium rubber hose. Looks nice on the motor.

I too drove the first week of Dec. We already had a couple feet of snow but it was a nice day and been dry for a couple days before. 15 deg F.. that heater sure worked nice.

Originally I had planned on driving 75 miles in each of Jan and Feb so I could complete 12 consecutive driving months but I just could not get out of the shop with all the snow we have had this year. Additionally it not fun washing all the salt off even in the shop.

The bad part was that the following Sat at our breakfast car group the motorcycle guys across the room from us had 2 road bikes show up and it was snowing lightly. So they scooped us good. They had electric heated suits...probably takes 20 amps each.
