Can anyone offer a source for Chris Craft hose number 16.54-00013?   

This hose goes from the heat exchanger on a 454 to the exhaust manifold.  Looks like the same hose number may have also been on the 305's and 350's.

The hose is a radiator hose with a reduction built into it.  The end with the 90 degree bend has an inside diameter of 1-1/4", but the long end has an inside diameter of only 1".

Doing web searches hasn't found this hose or any cross reference (at least not that I could find).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Head to the auto parts store.

Been there, done that.  A-Line didn't have anything close.

Napa provided hose 8761.  It's reasonably close in shape, if we trim the ends.  Fits the 90 degree side fine.  But it's a constant diameter hose - which is still 1-1/4" on the long end, that needs to go on a 1" fitting.

We may have to Frankenstein something...  


try Harpur's Marine in California. 

Hi John,  Have you tried West Marine???  Also I found the Trident Hose info in the files section.  Maybe give them a call??


Thank you - West Marine didn't have any of the part numbers I'm looking for.  Trident makes good stuff, but as far as I can tell, they don't sell the individual molded radiator / water hoses.


I gave Harpur's a call.  Their computers had blown up, and wouldn't be back online for another hour or so.  I emailed them the part numbers I'm looking for, and will see if Tom can locate them.   Fingers crossed!

Thanks all,
