A El Camino will need a new lower radiator hose at some point. So, why not purchase the correct style radiator hose for your El Camino that is a duplicate of the original GM hose? The El Camino Store has this El Camino lower radiator hose which was patterned after a NOS GM hose used on 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972 small block. The El Camino Store has only the best El Camino parts like this lower radiator hose always at the best possible price.
Where’s The Wire?
Many of the El Camino lower radiator hoses we carry do have a spring in them; however, we supply several that don’t. The spring was originally installed in the hose to speed up the coolant fill operation during final assembly at the factory. The spring holds the lower hose open for the quick pressure fill of coolant. Once the El Camino is off the assembly line the spring has served its purpose. A properly operating El Camino cooling system no longer requires the spring after the assembly process. The normal state of a cooling system is a pressure condition; around 14 to 18psi.
