Mishimoto Radiator Installed

OEM radiator cracked (see pic) and replaced it with Mishimoto. Also replaced the upper hose with dieselsite silicone version, billet housing and 203* thermostat. New up-pipes are next.

The only bad thing about the short neck and the SD upper hose is to change the belt you have to remove the hose

Still goes over the top on the OBS. Or am I missing something?

Our OBS hose has always been this design. We only sell it so customers can use the housing in their 1995-1997 and it has always gone around the belt.
The hose we sell is a custom design. It is not a stock hose from any vehicle model.

Your truck might be an early '95. Does your truck have a reservoir with a pressure cap? Or an overflow, with the pressure cap on the radiator? The '94.5 and early '95 trucks had the old-school radiator with a cap, and an overflow. Basically a holdover from the IDI days. Mid-'95, they went to what's more commonly seen these days, with the reservoir as part of the pressurized system. Switching to the short neck for these rads would probably require a completely custom top hose.

It's an early 95 with pressure cap on all metal rad and plastic over flow tank

Thanks for that explanation.
