If you are talking about the small diameter ones, 3/4 inch, they are for the heat, the larger that run to the bottom of the radiator and to the recovery tank are for the engine cooling, both can be replaced at the local parts store, they will not b metal as they are now, they use plastic tees and sections of hose clamped together by you! Or go to Ford for the preformed ones(much more expensive)!
