Trying to fit new hoses to my Spit and having real problems getting a watertight seal on the lower radiator hose.
The hose seems just too short/at the wrong angle and no matter how tight I try to get the jubilee clip the water just pours out at the bottom connection to the radiator, plus there seems to be hardly any clearance on the engine mounting.
In desperation, although mine's a 1300, I bought a 1500 hose from Moss to see if that's any better. Slightly improved fit as it's longer, but still the same issues on angles/general fit.
I've upgraded to the wider radiator so wonder if this is causing the fitment issue?
Anyone else had similar issues or got any helpful advice?
I'm rather embarrassed to be struggling on something that should be so simple!
