I'll check out the Gates part numbers. Thanks for the link!
No problem, good luck.

norway parts stores

Building a hot rod is probably a challenge where you live. I looked at your build pict's IT all looks good I need to build the doors for the nash Roadster then start on the chassis, I have a Jag rear and F 40 Jag for the front.

Thanks!

As an alternative, is it possible to heat the hose to make a bend on it? not much. Maybe 10-15 degrees.

Possible solution:

Unicoil - Bend hose into any shape!

Goodyear E-Z Coil

U-Bend Hose Coil from HBD/Thermoid, Inc.

Gates Unicoil - when curved/molded hose isn't available. (I think this is also in the catalog I linked to earlier)

As luck would have it I first ran across them looking for the two ended heater hose in the Gates catalog. Till then I hadn't heard of them.

Brian - the few times I've been to Norway, I don't recall seeing a chain parts store like Pep Boys or Auto Zone.

That is correct. Just forget about part stores the way you know them. We don't have those in Norway.

Here they won't/can't find anything without a part number or the cars' production year/type.
Searching a car part based on the part's look is simply not possible.

The way I see it, I have 2 options:
1. Try fitting a reducer.
2. Enlarge the firewall holes to accept a 3/4 hose, and use that all the way.
