Hello all

Need to find and buy one water hose like this one at the photo.Kanter Auto did sell these but not available now and no score when they will be back.They are for 1955-56 Packard cars without Ultramatic cooler.Part number 465445. Anyone who have spare ?
I have already bought one from Max Merritt but it is very tight and I can't use it.

I had Ross convert my 55 Clipper from an automatic to a manual shift transmission. He replaced the auto trans oil heat exchanger with a hose. I think he has a NAPA part number for the hose he uses. Ross?

Here is a photo of the upper and lower hoses and one of the hoses installed. Sorry, no part numbers.

Well this is the same hose set I bought.Wonder if Ross used tricks to have it fit to the waterpump.Soap maybe because it don't fit on my car.Did all models of 55-56 have same water pump ?

Put hose in some hot water let it soak for a while it will soften and be more flexible allowing it to fit over water pump

Maybe some trimming of the hose is needed?

I used silicone spray on both pump and inside hose surfaces when I did mine but liquid dishwashing soap would probably work too. It was tight and you do have to use some muscle getting it started. I started at sort of an angle and then worked around getting the hose onto the rough pump casting. As I recall, once a side was started then I also used a thin offset type screwdriver with the blade oriented as circled to sort of work around the hose and help get the hose pried over the lip and started on the casting.

Is your Packard not with power steering ?.
Looks very good room around the water pump

The Clipper did not have power steering. I didn't do any parallel parking. The non-boosted steering worked well. Agree, dish washing liquid is a good lubricant for rubber. Also, Howard's offset screw driver is a good way to get under the lip of the hose and get it to go over the pump.
