I would have to pull them out of the loft and look at them again to see what the difference was.
If it was an early build with the early style radiator, they had different radiator hose routing IIRC. I know for a fact that the upper hose is different on the early models. Not sure about the heater hoses on the early model

That may be it. I'm looking at Ford4Life7.3's coolant filter thread and the hoses on his 95 are opposite from mine. His passenger side hose appears to be going over the alternator down to the pump and driver's side hose going down by the bottle to the block and I don't see the factory T going down to the rad. Or does he need to swap the hoses and T as they run from the firewall to the other respective hoses from block and pump?

I just looked at my heater hoses. Mine does not have a Tee in it. It just runs straight down to the head. I guess the early models didn't have it.

That's b/c the early build trucks. Mostly '94.5 and early '95 had an overflow bottle and had a cap on the radiator. Ours don't have a cap on the radiator and we fill through the bottle, so it has a hose that runs down to the lower radiator hose to fill the radiator. Early builds only had an overflow hose going to the bottle.

The '95 I parted out had the same style radiator as in my truck (except it was a manual core and not the auto core) and had the degas bottle with the cap on it, instead of having the cap on the radiator like the early build (94.5) trucks did. I am almost sure that the heater hose had no tee in it and the hoses just went straight from the heater core to the water pump and head respectively. It seems to me like I thought about using one of the hoses out of the 95 on my truck then realized that I would have to change several hoses since there was nowhere to connect the hose from the tee in the heater hose. I believe both the heater hose and the lower radiator hose were different.

Again, I would have to look at them again to be sure what the difference was, but I know there was a difference. I will try to remember to take a look at them tonight and snap a couple pictures.

That's exactly how mine is. It's a '95 with the late model radiator and pressurized degas bottle, but the heater hose does not have a Tee in it like the others.

Google lead me to this thread, as I am searching for the same fitting. I did come up with this 5/8 x 5/8 x 1/2" Tee in case anyone else is searching for it.

I just ordered one, and the company is pretty dang good. Refunded me on my shipping cost since they found a cheaper route, and didn't even have to ask.
