Coolant hose and solutions for sticking to pipe?

Post #1 by sdiesel » Sat Mar 21, 2020 10:08 am

Are there any creative solutions for coolant hose that has glued (gooy-ed) itself to itsmetal pipe?

It's a problem in need of a good solution.

My first thought: Teflon tape.
Second, buy OEM hose if u have OEM pipe.
Use spring clamps?
What else works?

A pocket screwdriver and penetrating oil.

Stick the screwdriver between the nipple and hose, give it a shot of penetrating oil, grab the hose and give it a couple of good twists.

Usually comes right off.

It's generally a bad idea to lubricate the inside of a hose when installing. Real carb cleaner will make it just as slippery and dries in a few minutes.

That's my go- to solution and I get varied result.
Oftenon a
Hose that is buried behind ,say, an alternator on a351.
Big engine hoses are made of silicone don't present the same problems,
As much as rubber it seems.
We use Teflon tape as a
Lubricant in gas under pressure fittings. I may try that unless someone can definitely say it does not work

Why not a little silicone grease like water faucet or plumbers grease? It's safe on rubber.
It ain't gonna fix itself

That is worth a go.
Also, are silicone hoses a dress up item ? Are they a real go- to.
Big engines use them as they are million miles or ten thousand hour hoses on some gen set in the outback of beyond, where there are no human eyes to see not ears to hear if things are amiss
