where to get replacement radiator hoses

Hello!
I need to replace the radiator hoses for my 1987 IH S1700 6.9LD school bus. Ideas? Links? Suggestions? Anything would be helpful. Found one place local but they want almost $200 total for both hoses. Seems a bit high to me. Thanks.

NAPA, or such. Chances are they are silicone hoses, which explains the price.

Look on the bright side-you won't need them again for another 27 years.

replacement radiator hoses

On occasion, I have had some stainless tubing bent for radiator hoses and use just straight hoses. The dairy industry uses miles of stainless tubing in mostly all sizes. Call a dairy and ask. People who do dairy plumbing usually have the benders and can weld anything special..... Frank
