OK who knows the sizes for the 3 lines that run into the water valve?

i need the hose size for the line into the heater core, the line into the coolant bridge between the heads and the feed line from the front.



after 3 valves in 2 years I'm done, I'm finding a permenant cheap fix for this.

anyone with some help, I think i can do it I just need the hose sizes.

and if you must know, all the hoses are missing on mine(well they are now)
so i'm starting from scratch, but would like to make a plug and play fix.

Thanks.

OK i did it, i found the hoses are 3/4 in.

I have removed the SOB.

I used a 3/4 to 3/4 hose connector to connect the hose from the coolant bridge to the feed line into the heater core(the hose that runs up front under the coolant reservoir) then i used a 3/4 hose to 1/2 npt connector in the top hose that runs to the y bypass, then with teflon tape and a 1/2 flare cap I closed it off. No leaks, and i have heat when i want it.

Cost me all of $9

wish i would have thought of this 2 years and 3 of those $90 leaking pieces of crap before.
