53 Flathead, radiator hose pipe

Does anyone know where I can get a new set of radiator hose pipes for a 53 f100? Mine are full of rust pits and after sand blasting, pin-holes.

I wonder if an exhaust shop can bend 1 1/4" pipe, and how well that would hold up?

I have found several in stainless or chrome, but I want the original painted pipes. Besides, the pipes they sell are for 48-53, and they don't look right. The 53s were different.

Thanks.

Fat Fendered Ford is starting off with a positive reputation.
I know this is digging up an old thread but I'm running into the same problem as the original poster who was trying to locate a set of these pipes. Anybody know of a source for these? I called Antique Auto Supply but they are now out. What does a current parts search return? I might be able to make my current set of pipes work but they are starting to deteriorate. I found an eBay auction where someone is selling a repro set but they look a little cheesy to me: 1953-Ford-Flathead-V8-Pickup-Truck-Radiator-Hose-Tubes-Steel-New-Hot-Rod-Restore

I had made some custom pipe for a rad hose years ago when I worked for a muffler shop. They served me very well. We also recently had a muffler shop make some for the lower rad pipe on our Petrbilt's with CAT engine's and they also worked.

53 Rad Pipe

Rad Pipe, for 53 yes you would be better off getting your local Muffler Shop bend a pair for you, better Metal, and they don't come from china.

"Make sure you notice the welds on the ends"

How could you miss them?!? Looks like a blind man with a battery and coat hanger made those welds. That's just unbelievable.

You may be as well off for the time being with the flex hoses sold at NAPA and such.

Kevin,

I thought you have a 215 in your 53, unless this is for a different build?

needhelp49, Yup, that's them. It's a new addition to their catalog. They didn't have them when I was looking for them.

Edit: I stand corrected. That's the same thing they had when I was looking before.

They are not exactly the shape of the 1953. On the '53 the engine sits a little higher compared to the radiator, so the pipe is not as tall. It looks like theirs has 2 45 degree angles, the '53s do not. See the second picture and the PDF drawing below.

Couldn't you use 48-52 pipes with longer rubber hoses as needed to make up the difference?

The 49's have just a little different shaped bends I think.



Sorry about the crappy picture

This summer I finally came to the realization that I needed to throttle my ambitions back a little. I was trying to build two trucks at once - a show truck and a daily driver. Wasn't really getting anywhere with either one. So, I decided to focus on something in between. I sold all my extra parts and kept the best to build one truck. I wanted to go with the flathead so I pulled the 215. I haven't decided what to do with it yet. It runs great and I put a lot of time and money into the rebuild. Probably not a lot of demand for an engine that was only produced two years. Or maybe that makes it rare...

Anyway, that's why I'm pursuing the coolant pipes. I could probably get by with what the ones I have but I'd feel a lot better with something new.
