Might bend up a sample using a piece of wire or copper tubing, then take that to a parts store & see if they can match it to something. Don't forget to write down the diameter at each end.

I did the bent wire thing for my 34. Took it to Oreilley and went behind the counter and sorted through all their hoses. Found one about four feet long and used only about two feet of it. I have the number somewhere I will try and find it.

One thing that really helps on these early Fords is a t-stat housing that points straight up instead of an angle.
