Default Radiator Hoses

I am putting a 59AB engine in my 1935 ford. What hoses do I need for the upper and lower radiator hoses. I think I have read that I can use a Gates #21253 for the upper hoses. I am unsure which ones to use for the bottom hoses. Dicky Herren rherren@american-usa.com or 205-440-6349

thank you for your help.

If you're looking for the standard hoses to connect your 59A to the radiator that's standard for that engine here's all you need: http://macsautoparts.com/search.asp?...r+hose&x=0&y=0

For some reason I thoufgt that I had to have hoses that were offset for the 59ab to 1935 radiator. Is that not correct?

Dicky, I used the Gates #21253 as an upper radiator hose when I installed a 59ab engine in a '35 Ford tudor sedan. There is also a Gates hose #20151 that will work well as the lower hose. If you use the search function here and plug in "gates radiator hose" you will find many other posts on this same subject with lots of information and pictures.
