Anybody have an idea where I can obtain the correct lower radiator hose for my 1995 Bronco, 5.8L, Auto, with trailer tow package? There is a tee in the main hose with a feed and return that goes to a factory oil cooler attached to the block at the oil filter base. Non or the parts shops have the CORRECT hose for this application. I know the cooler is OE because I ordered and took delivery of the truck new. Thanks!
Can you get a new standard hose, cut it and attach each piece to the tee fitting? Or is the tee molded rubber? Maybe you can use a copper tee from the hardware, with short pieces of pipe sweated in to attach the hoses to.
This may be a long shot. But, back in '72,'73 I remember seeing new 429 police intercepters coming down the assembly line with a oil to water heat exchanger similar to what you describe. The parts may be available from the auto parts stores for these. These were 1972 & 1973 Ford Galaxies or Customs (I don't remember which). I do remember that they were fast compared to standard LTD's. One other unrelated thing, they had hydraulic brake boosters (hooked up to the power steering pump, no vacuum booster).
