block to heater core hose

Where do you guys get the formed hose that goes from the block to the heater core on the '66's? Mine is still good, but want a spare, just in case. (Is that 3/4" or 7/8", or what)? I've been checking around with little success. thanks

It should be 3/4" and I used just bulk hose. If your worried about the hose kinking then you could use something like a coil spring inside the heater hose like a NAPA part # NBH 9982 .

Hit your local big box parts store and just browse the hose rack. I bet you can find one that has close to the right bends in it.
