    wrap behind alt/ hoses?

    well, since I had to cut the upper brace off my core support to make way for the radiator and condenser, I have no place to hold the stock 4.3 hose away from the alternator fins. I first sliced through the old stock one and made a bracket and bought a new one. With the shifting of the engine under acceleration, I can tell the alternator is still slicing into the hose because it now has a 1/2" gash into the new hose. What are the hoses and waternecks that let the hose go behind the alternator and into the radiator?

    Just go with a standard 45 degree offset housing and modify a 4.3 upper hose to fit.

    I just got an 88 5.0 Camaro upper hose. It wraps behind the alternator and its cut to fit. Fits like a glove and alot cheaper than the stock 4.3 hose :D
