Re: new hoses are a must in this weather

I can't in my life see how changing the main heater hose would affect it but if it worked then
The radiator is the main part that has to be up to scratch, I can also have my air con set to 16 degrees and my car will stay at the same temp whatever the weather or driving conditions. Quite a nice feeling that.

Yes and the clutch fans sound like crap but theyre a lot more effective than people realise

Same here, must be a V8 thing But 16 degrees? That's a bit chilly isn't it. I set mine to about 20 degrees.

Re: new hoses are a must in this weather

Tis a bit chilly. When car gave me a lift to Philip Island, he had the temp set to 16, i was frozen and he looked bloody hot.

Went for drive today with Aircon on abd my temp gauge shot up as far as the top of normal, had water pump replaced yesterday.

Re: new hoses are a must in this weather

i should probably get my air conditioning fixed one day... windows down just doesn't work too well on hot days... hot air blowing in your face.
