Need help finding a radiator hose

I have a 67 Nova I have a 355 small block with a March Performance Ultra Drive serpentine set up on front and a Aluminum radiator.The budget is getting tight was trying to save a few bucks and just go with rubber radiator hoses.I found one that fits the top perfect,but haven problems finding a bottom hose that a get up over the tension er bracket. I have tried several and not much luck yet.I've found one that is close ,however if it was a few inches longer would be great.It looks like it stretched and flattens out on top of the bracket.Does anyone have any answers?Besides going with the $120. stainless set . Thanks

What about adding an extension made from a length of tubing that matches the ID of the hose? This will depend on the hose being smooth and the actual hose routing. I've had to do this in the past and other than the extra clamps adding a bit of clutter, it functioned perfectly.

You may be able to find "universal fit" convoluted flexible hose that can be bent into whatever shape that's needed. Some examples- http://pitstopusa.com/c-135191-cooli...ator-hose.html
