I had my tank wear a hole in my radiator cross over hose. I went to the auto parts store and all they had that size was fuel injecton hose. They thought it could handle high temps. It's good quality hose with fiber in it. Anybody know if it can handle the temp? Also wanted to get anti freeze at the auto parts store. The manual states non silicate version but Prestone doesn't say if it has silicates or not. Anybody have a clue? Thanks, John

A 5/16" injection fuel hose will work well.
If you can, make sure the bend radius off the right side rad is as tight as you can make it. This hose will also wear in the same spot as the stocker, but will take a lot longer to wear through.
