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.

|cobalt327||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.|

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

The holes in my firewall accepts no bigger than 5/8" hoses, and the distance from the heater outlest to the inside of the firewall is very short. That's why.
I'll check out the Gates part numbers. Thanks for the link!

Specially designed for heater hose applications requiring changes in diameter.
For part numbers, see page A26, here.
