Installing Cool-Flex

It couldn't be easier to install Cool-Flex on your car. Just follow these steps:

step 1 - measure your old hose


Measure your old hose.

step 2 - measure and mark your Cool-Flex


Mark your Cool-Flex, clamp it and cut it with a fine-tooth hacksaw or cut-off wheel.

step 3 - bend the Cool-Flex to fit your car


Form Cool-Flex to fit your car.

step 4 - install clamps and end covers


Install clamps in end covers. Expand them into their grooves.

step 5 - insert rubber connector


Insert rubber connector, make clamps finger tight.

step 6 - assemble cover and hose


Fit connector and cover onto Cool-Flex. Note tapered end of cover goes toward hose.

step 7 - install hose in car


Slip connector onto radiator and water pump.

step 8 - tighten clamps


Align covers so that clamp screws are hidden and tighten clamps with proper tool.

step 9 - lower hose


Install the lower hose the same as your upper hose, making sure the hose is clear of any moving parts.

If you have a Big-Block engine, you may need a two inch adapter and cover at one end when installing a lower hose.

step 10 - ready to ride


Refill your radiator, run the engine, and check for leaks as engine reaches operating temperature. Shut down and let it cool, then retighten the clamps. Check your coolant level, and top off your radiator.
You're ready to ride!
