Radiator hose ID
 
4 Attachment(s)
Weíve been trying to find rad hoses to fit my Ď69 c10. The old ones fit perfectly and the GM parts number is still on the upper. Chances are these arenít original to this truck (engine was rebuilt in early 2000ís) so they may not be truck specific hoses. Iíve been trying to google the parts #. No luck.

The upper hose is stamped GM AY 3947120 RQ.

The lower doesnít have any stamps still on it, but Iím hoping if we can identify the upper it will give us a clue on the lower. The bends are perfect for keeping it away from the trans cooler lines. We were close with one but the water pump end was about 1/4Ē to small to fit onto the water pump. And we seriously tried everything to get it on there.

Or maybe one of you amazing guys can tell just by looking at it what would work?! Go easy on me, Iím a noob.
Here are some pics for reference

3947120 Inlet radiator hose 1.5" diameter is correct for 2WD '68-'72 10-30 Series and '70-'72 2WD Blazer 283-350

3918487 Outlet radiator hose 1.75" diameter is correct for '67-'72 283-350 10-30 series

Get a metal clothes hanger and bend it in the same fashion the radiator hose is and take it to your local parts house. I've been able to have them let me look in the back at their selection of hoses, to match it up.
Good luck

You're over thinking the project.. Go to your local parts house that handles Gates hoses. (not O'Reillys).. Give 'em the year, make, and model and you'll get the correct hoses.. These old trucks are still "on the Books" in the Gates catalog..

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Best Advice^^^^^^^^^

But just for reference as to availability I don't endorse an of these just a reference. https://www.amazon.com/Silicone-Radi...s%2C247&sr=8-3

Also I don't know if it's made generic for both 2wd and 4wd but I have always had to trim the lower hose to fit for some reason.

We have tried this already and no dice. I actually have a set I still gotta return to one place. Most of the places around us are AG related so itís all about tractors and farm equipment. That or they have part time random guys working the counter that even *I* know more about working on a truck than they do.

I was just hoping to get some guidance on what would replace these hoses because they fit perfectly and everything weíve tried doesnít cut it.

A quick web search for "3947120 radiator hose" yielded this hit from Classic Industries

https://www.classicindustries.com/product/3947120.html

What engine do you have? FYI, Apparently the 1967 327 uses a different inlet hose. I have not bought from these folks, but the google search yielded many more hits besides the above.

The same search with "3918487" that 1970cstblazer supplied shows many hits too, but they don't look to be as "S" shaped as your...hmm?

Dude, my google must be broken. The engine is an early 70ís 350. Iíve bought from Classic before and they had really great customer service.

Iím down right now with medical issues so the hubby is gonna try a different parts place on his day off next week. Fingers crossed and if it doesnít work Iíll definitely be using those searches above!

Thanks!
