Do my heater hoses look different?

I don't recall seeing this configuration in any of the recent hose pics. Is the T in the hose running from the firewall to the passenger bloack normal? The T runs down to the radiator and clamps on near the drain valve.

Looks just like mine. I'm having a heck of time finding a 5/8" x 1/2" x 5/8" tee to replace the OEM one if need be. Could make up something if push comes to shove I guess. Not sure if anyone makes that hose anymore. Ford said no.

Cool. I don't know what I though was different. I guess I've just missed that T in all the other pics.

Lol. Nah. It's all covered in dust but looks a little different too after I put that pinky purplish fleet charge in there the other day. I did oil, coolant, and oil cooler all at once a few days ago.

Nah. I'm not good with the whole color scheme so I call it pinky-purple. It was pretty nice to just pour in and go and it was cheaper than Prestone Heavy Duty. We'll see how long the SCA holds up.

So it's pink eh? Hey where did you get your coolant filter base? I want one with more than two ports to put a temp gauge in.

T is normal.
If I remember correctly I got a new lower hose to replace that one and although it had the proper bends to go under the radiator, it was just the lower hose from teh T down. I had to cut the T out of the old hoses and use it to make a new hose.

I am thinking that there was something different in those hoses between the '96 I drive and the '95 I parted out. Maybe it was just the location of the T? I can't remember now, but I know that there was something different about either the heater hoses or the radiator hoses and their routing. I would have to pull them out of the loft and look at them again to see what the difference was.
