There's a hose leaking coolant, can't tell why because it's pretty much hidden. It is, however, the hose that comes off the thermostat.
I can't see it because it goes under the carburetor heat shield and I'm kinda scared to remove the carburetor --at least until I have the part.
There are pictures in my Service manual that show the hose leaving the thermostat but I can't tell what it hooks into under that heat shield--maybe a heater inlet or outlet hose? And yes, I can take a picture but you can't see anything beyond a hose leaving the thermostat housing.
One off-the-street adviser told me where it went but with a flashlight, he was wrong; the other thing he said was that it had a metal or hard plastic connector on the unseen end but you know about his credibility.
Oh, and any wisdom on places that might carry a part that will work since I've no real hope the part itself is around anymore.
Thanks much, Saralou
have the same problem?
