    Default radiator hoses for r17 motor in an r12

    G/day all
    Karlie's in need of a set of radiator hoses for her r12 with r17 motor can any one help with suppliers and possibly part numbers that local suppliers can understand?
    Cheers Peter

    Good luck, love to find some for my R17. I used two ends from another make and joined them with a length of stainless pipe. Took the original into local parts place and matched the curves. I remember one end was from a older Pajero.

    I don't think these hoses any more, so will have to do what Sunroof has done and make something up that is close to original layout.

    You might consider silicone too - great selection of bends and diameters. There's a racing shop in Perth with a big range of hoses and alloy piping to link them up.

    It's diagonally opposite Allpikes, near the Scarborough Beach Rd end of one of those cul-de-sacs with multiple small businesses. Interesting place - I recently found some really good insulating sleeving there for a alternator wire that is near the exhaust manifold on the R8.

    The cul-de-sac is on the southern side of SB Road almost opposite where Green St joins it from the Mount Lawley side.

    Cheers

    There just standard R17 or 12G. Surely Mecaparts or someone like that would have them.

    Mecaparts has them. MP0727 51 Euro and MP0728 37Euro. Not cheap, but you will probably never have to buy another pair.

    I got mine from Mecaparts.
    As Alan said, not cheap, but as a once off purchase its not too bad.

    Thank you, John.

    If you're after insulating sleeve with fibreglass or just some tough heatshrink with or without glue, Jaycar in Newcastle St, Northbridge is a good source. If they don't have what you're after, next door to Jaycar is a big electrical stuff distributor where you have another broad selection of such stuff.

    Hello again and thanks for that.

    Jaycar has a new shop in Osborne Park too, much easier for me. I didn't know about the electrical shop - hadn't ever noticed. Jaycar is privately owned I think, so not sure that they'll keep both shops forever.

    Cheers

    They've been there next to each other for yonks. Jaycar is more for light duty, hobby grade stuff, the other one is industrial/tradie kinda shop. A bit more expensive for you and I who only want two bobs now and then, but sometimes the Jaycar stuff won't do. I have for instance bought off them some glue lined large diameter industrial heatshrink I used to repair the ends of braided vacuum lines the clips cut into. I pulled a length of heatshrink to cover the frayed ends, shrunk it (the glue heats and sticks) and put the clips on top, and years later, no problems. That is really good stuff. Recently, I found braided heatshrink as well. Who knows what we'll have tomorrow?

    So, electro-porn on Newcastle St week it is!

    The range of heatshrink now available is great and I need to inform myself much better.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, every time I find myself visiting Jaycar, I drop in next door just to see what else has happened in the electrical world.

    In Osborne park you have RS components if you need something more intricate. Their shop online should help focus the search (though it is a pain in the butt to use). Much easier to pay them a visit and then order off the website, especially if they don't have in the shop what you want. Postage pays for convenience, but they're slow.

    Don't forget Altronics either. Makes Jaycar look like a Milk Bar. A fantastic range of components as well. Plus small fasteners and heat shrink.

    There is also Altronics Wholesale, a different company run by the same people. If you can get an account with them, their prices are up 60% lower than Altronics Shop Fronts.

    You're right, Rob, and just around the corner from those two shops in Newcastle St, there is the Altronics, right next to the Police, in Roe St corner with F.... (the name is eluding me right now, but it starts with an F, I'm not being vulgar). So there you go. Three shops with a good selection of stuff within five minutes' walk. Oh, Altronics have Deutsch connectors too these days in both miniature and normal sizes. Perfect to fix old french electrique de merde.

    PS. I remembered. It's Fitzgerald St.

    Altro is about 20 minutes drive from me, in Springvale, and half as far as Jaycar. Altro Wholesale is behind the shop in a factory.

    And I check stock on the web before I leave.

    Roe street was the very first Altro store.

    Just realised you were probably talking about the two Jaycar shops. Of late I have noticed Jaycar open a number of shops around Perth, and they seem to be doing well. I know the new one in Ozzy Park, it's about three years old now, so I guess it's doing fine. I haven't noticed any decrease in activity in the Newcastle one either, so I don't think they're competing against each other. Down south they're a bit further away from each other and the freeway doesn't help much, so a bit more difficult for me to reach, much easier to dash to Northbridge rather than Gosnells even though in theory they're the same distance from Murdoch.
