Radiator Lower hose que. on 350 engine

I have a 1951 style Radiator that has a smaller lower outlet and having trouble finding a hose to stay tight, any suggestions, Only need a shaped "L" hose about 18 in. each way! Ideal would be a flex type hose but do need a smaller size on Rad end! Thanks again, Dana

They make inserts or hose adapters for this. I have the same thing on my upper hose. It is basically and smaller diameter hose that slips over the neck, trim down to needed length, and then slip hose over it. I have had zero leaks. Not real sure where they may be purchased, mine came with the metal hose kit from Summit Racing.

You can get hose adapters at NAPA...I used one on the lower hose on the 30 Ford coupe that I built with a 350sbc.
