That is a good idea, I have fitted them tonight but it is still easily accessible so we might aswell do it.

They worked very well on the Sabre in both Oakes and my ownership.

I need some more advice actually, I have had abit of a nightmare trying to get some replacement coolant hoses, walkers charged me £213 and sent me stainless tubes not hoses then sent me some hoses stating that any missing ones were no longer avaialble. what are you guys using instead?

A couple of those are available from RPW, otherwise just use equivalent silicone.

Cheers Corky, they barely have anything so it looks as if I need to look into finding some silicone replacements.

I dont suppose anyone knows what size those hoses are in terms of ID? I would go an measure one but I am in work at the moment. Also this came filled with OAT's coolant (the pink stuff) is this right or should it have the blue stuff in?

Should be blue stuff.

Large hoses are generally 32mm I thought?
