I started a topic a while back but someone said you could still get them yet? The hoses to the heat core in the front compartment. If they are no longer available I can get them reproduced. Which ones are not available? 88 with A/C? Maybe the non A/C hoses are still available yet? Let me know which ones are not available and those are the hoses I will need samples of to get them reproduced. The samples can be junky as long as they are in the same shape as when on the car etc. I can get most any hose reproduced. I would need to know what hose and I would need a good used sample.

I just saw your thread and I am surprised that no one has posted to it.
I have not needed any hoses for a long time but I hope someone sees this thread so they can tell you what they know and get you the sample parts so you can make them if they are no longer available.
I would like the parts I need to be available when I need them and I am sure a lot of Fiero fans feel the same way. Some has to to know the answer to your questions.

Anyone?

Rodney, are you going to go to the 30th? We met at the 20th and it would be nice to see you again and some of your great Fiero products this summer.

I have looked at purchasing two new heater core hoses for my 88. All I have ever seen offered were for non AC cars.

If someone knows where one could get both heater hoses for an 84 with A/C, a point in the right direction would be nice. I have not found them available anywhere. Took my two off my Lambo build for Rodney which are in fair shape cosmetically/dimensionally,(only had to slice one end a little lengthwise to remove) but old enough I don't trust them and wanted to replace as I have everything else in the build.
That first thread about these hoses died shortly after removing mine.

Because someone posted they were able to get everything they needed. That kind of stopped the thread. I need to know for sure what is needed. If some are available please do not post here that you found them for your car. This topic is about what is not available.

Non of these proved to be true.

Turst me I have looked high and low, and can not find anybody that sells the preformed heater hoses for an 84 WITH A/C. Found some for the NON A/C cars, but they are too short. I was excited when you had this thread started,
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/090437.html
but after it died, I gave up looking and was figuring I was going to have to go the aftermarket stainless bendable stuff or similar. Have not got to that part of my build yet, so at the moment I have done nothing with the heater hoses except remove the old ones. If new ones are still out there for A/C cars, I can't find them.

Kevin

edit to add this thread showing the problem with the ones found now.
Fiero Store no longer has the heater hoses for 84 A/C cars.

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/114969.html

Mine is not an 88 but an 84 and I am saying the heater hoses for it are not available for an A/C car.

Are the hoses for an 84 with A/C different than the hoses from an 85-87 with A/C?

That is a good question. In all my searching, I have not found anything that says they are the same, and I do not have any other Fieros of different years in my area to check against. So with everything I have seen so far, they are different for whatever reason but I honestly have no clue what that difference would be.

I've never been able to find 88 AC heater hoses. Last time I replaced my heater core, I had to cut the hoses off and ended up using a hose splice kit and a short length of straight hose to reconnect it. I was considering going with braided steel lines so I could get angle fittings for the proper bends if I need to replace the entire line, but OEM style replacements would be preferable.

I looked on Autozone for my '87's. 4-cylinder showed nothing for with A/C. For my 6-cylinder..it became confusing having the same part number for with and without and showing the 4-cylinder w/o A/C as an option. I suppose A/C or no A/C might change the line locations from the back. Seems like there should be 2 for the front and 2 for the back unless they are close enough for a common bend and length? or straight at the back?

I was able to re-use mine on the 4-cylinder with A/C a few years ago (did not analyze, just happy I made the old hose reach) but, I am thinking of replacing all the older hoses since I suspect I have flow/leak issues. It appears '87 4-cyl w/ A/C could be on that list too.

edit: is there anyone with master part books for all years that could compare the part numbers for each year and by A/C or non-A/C?

I received a few hoses today. Just 10 of each. In maybe 6 weeks I'll have more of these three hoses. The hoses I have are for the 88 V-6 with A/C heater core hoses (both small and large diameter). Should also fit the 88 L4. And the large hose from the water pump to the passenger side coolant tube for the 88 V-6. The Gates hose that has been available seems to be too short. I'll hopefully get these on my web page soon.

By the end of the year or early next year I will have all the 88 V-6 with A/C radiator hoses in stock plus the two 84 L4 with A/C heater core hoses.

Made a web page for them:

http://rodneydickman.com/ca...h=22&products_id=319

I only have 10 of each for the moment. In several weeks I'll have plenty in stock. Later this year or very early next year I will have all the 1988 V-6 with A/C radiator and heater core hoses on hand. Plus the 1984 with A/C front compartment heater core hoses.

I have good samples of the 1988 L4 engine compartment hoses on hand and I may look into having them made if I see any demand. Some of these hoses have special ends so I will need to design a few adapters to go along with them. For the 1988 L4 I will have the front compartment radiator hoses as they are the same for the L4 and the V-6. And for the 1988 L4 with A/C I will have the heater core hoses as they also are the same as the 1988 V-6 with A/C heater hoses.

Yes. The 88 looks to have its own specific one year only heater and radiator hoses.
