Car is an 86 GT 2.8 auto A/C equipped

I need to replace the hose shown in this picture:

[Picture is Dodgerunner's, not mine. It's from an 85GT, was posted in an old thread.]

The hose connects to the lower side of the thermostat housing, underneath the thermostat. It runs towards the firewall, then curves toward the center of the firewall and goes downward. I assume it leads to the heater core.

Does anybody know a part number for that hose from Goodyear, Gates, or anybody?
I'm looking at hoses on NAPA and RockAuto but I'm not sure any of them match. They love to use terminology like "Pipe-1" and "Pipe-2" .. I have no idea what those numbers are supposed to refer to.
I don't see anything that looks like it on Fiero Store.
NAPA has a couple whose names sound promising, but they don't look right:
NBH 11602 "Heater to Pipe-1" http://www.napaonline.com/C...=NBH11602_0117482194
NBH 10853 "Heater to Pipe-2" http://www.napaonline.com/C...=NBH10853_0117482190


RockAuto has a bunch of hoses:
http://www.rockauto.com/cat...249107,parttype,6892
Again, some labeled "heater to pipe 1" and "heater to pipe 2" - it would seem one of these might be the hose I'm looking for, but the routing doesn't look the same.

Does anybody know where I can get that hose in the picture above?

Thanks for the suggestion. But from the picture that looks just like Gates 21515 which I've replaced before:
http://www.rockauto.com/cat...moreinfo.php?pk=2766
Assuming that's the same hose (it looks like it) - that one goes from the water pump to a connection at the trunk wall. I have that hose in my notes from when I replaced it last January.

might be the dayco 88351 looks like the one in the pick saged a bit the 88351 is a cut to fit hose. looks like the 88351 in the pick it is cut at a bend just keep it in mind this is what the one with the red line under it looks like. but unsure. the sag fooled me at first i was thinking it was the firist one. take a look at the dayco 88351 style see if it will reach and if any thing cut to fit if you can. any ways wish you luck finding the hose.


could also be this one too

I've had some requests to have this one made. I can have some made. Need a few samples. Can be junky and be slit to get off.

One more vote of interest here. I can't send you mine though, it's on a daily driver and it's still holding on, just looks to be in questionable condition at this point.
Since the time of this thread I had forgotten about this hose, but I'm sure it's not getting any better.
I haven't tried the Dayco 88351 or ACDelco 88907557 which were suggested, but I did see a thread where jetman found them listed as belonging to one of the variants of the heater core connections up front:

Thanks, edited the post for credit. It shows the hoses nicely without any pesky engine parts in the way.

The sample I received does not have that U shaped area. My sample goes up and turns to the right at about a 90 degree angle. The picture above shows it going up and doing an (almost) 180 degree turn.

Any have any input on that?

Out of curiosity, is this an 85, 86 (V6) only hose, or does my 87 have it as well? I replaced all of my hoses back in 08 but I don't remember this one. Maybe I missed it.

Hi Rodney, love your stuff! I have a stock 86 GT, 5sp Muncie with AC. I'd be happy to road test for you. I drive about 40 miles a day 4-6 times a week plus weekend trips couple times a month.

I put them on my web page now. If anyone determines the OEM GM part number I could use it. If anyone gets one and can take some pictures of it installed I could use them for this web page.

For now I called it the firewall heater hose.
