    SYD: Inner city fabrication - coolant hardline

    A steel coolant hardline that runs along the chassis rail in the Benz disintegrated in my hand last week. Of course, it's NLA from MB, 3-4 weeks ex-Germany for a repro item through M-B Spares.

    Surely it wouldn't be too hard to remanufacture. OD is 18mm, and it doesn't need to be steel. This is it:

    Any suggestions of a fabricator in the inner city (North Shore, Mascot, Inner West)?

    Will ask my Dad where he got his 230SL parts from before he sold it. Might be another source.

      Motorsport Connections might be worth a shot they're out west but also got mobile van.
      an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

          Pirtek could do it.

              Thanks guys, enzed said no dice so presumed Pirtek would be the same. I'll give them a buzz tomorrow.

              Motorsport Connections can only work with tube up to 15mm apparently

                Lol pirtek and unzed I only use hydralink. you just need a beader that does 18mm that is all the difference is between pipe and hose pipe for coolant systems. The major concern I would have is that it has had either no coolant changes or mixed coolants and the rest of the cooling system will be fucked I would address this before you go any further.

                  No dice with Pirtek, the y-piece is the stumbling block for them too. Any other suggestions?

                    does a hose just push onto each end and do up with a hose clamp?

                      Hawkesbury Hydraulics are pretty clever. And versatile. Everything from a 50yo tractor to a Top Fuel dragster have had bits made there.

                        could you not bodge up some heater hose and brass barbs until the new one arrives?

                          You can get 3/4in annealed copper tubing from Bunnings, and it bends by hand easily enough. You could cut it at the right spot, stick in a barbed t-piece (or y-piece), with some heater hose to connect, and once you painted it bleck, it would look pretty close and work just fine.
