Upper and lower radiator hose

So I was trying to adjust my timing yesterday and leaned into the upper radiator hose into the alternator belt and cut a hole into the hose.  Is there
any better options on upper radiator hose to route away from the alternator belt.  The hose also routes to the point you can’t see the timing mark
on the balancer.  Just checking if there are better options on a replacement.

Thanks,
Tom

Get a standard hose and trim the ends and use it.
We also stock the exact one which is no longer made.
Call me and I will help you.

I replaced both a while back, ended up using the Gates 20991 for the upper, and Gates 22125 for the lower.  The 20991 swings way up and over the fan.

Got a Gates too Chris and yes it got way away from the alternator belt. Much better routing.  Thanks for the help Jim K!  Jim step me thru the process
and how much to trim off to fit it on best. Fits like a glove now.
