For 28 bucks i had the bottom rad outlet moved to the dr.side, took rad shop all of a 1/2hr to do it & then i toook a piece of flexible aluminum tube, i think it was an old clothes dryer hose, bent to roughly the shape, to my local garage & got a rad hose to fit.

If you convert your radiator or buy one with the lower hose on the drivers side then you can just get a lower hose from a 1970 Mustang with a small block and it will fit just fine.

+1. Rad shops can move outlets in their sleep. $20-40 is typical. Then use the factory-style 1970+ lower hose for your car model to match the new pump. :tup:

Same problem once upon a time. Before I changed the radiator I used two pieces of hose with a piece of exhaust tubing in the middle as a crossover. Added about a half gallon of coolant to my system, LOL.

I bought a piece of flexible hose, 24" long, and it worked perfectly. You have to lay on your back to see it. Cheap fix.
