69 Washer hoses
« on: September 30, 2011, 04:16:39 PM »
Need a new set of hoses for standard non RS car. Everybody sells them but who makes the best and looks most correct. Classic Muscle has 2 sets, one ribbed and one with GM stamps, which would be more correct.
Thanks for the input

My untouched original hoses (both the larger feed hose and the smaller nozzle hoses) are ribbed, but have no GM markings.

Thank you John. Are they single or multi-ribbed hoses and diameter size if it ts not an inconvenience. I think some of the aftermarket pieces are the wrong diameter?
Truly appreciate the help!

Yes, there are multiple ribs (the number of ribs identified the hose supplier). The feed hose measures .364", and the nozzle hoses measure .310".

Would these same hoses apply to 67 and 68.

I can not believe a set of hoses on eBay just went for $504.00 and there where 16 bids. :o
Now that's spreading the wealth. ;D

No this is not spreading the wealth! This is the "open checkbook mentality" that is so pervasive and ridiculous in this hobby. This is  a classic example of ebay auction fever........... Then when you win and realize how much you have spent for these little pieces of rubber "you step back and say to yourself my god what have I done" (David Byrne Talking Heads "Once in a lifetime")   This also shows a total lack of common sense or just being able to "s---" money at will.
5 will get you 10 they get relsited in the next 30 days, but I am happy for the seller, hope the deal is completed. Boy am in the "wrong" business!
Good luck with that 100% original NOS parts resto if you don't have a 6 figure income, biannually!
