I know how to look for rad hoses. Like I said, there are hoses that are maybe "close enough", and hoses that can be made to work. This rant is about the fact that auto parts stores can't and don't want to stock every hose ever made. Hose manufacturers want to minimize the number of hoses they make. So for our old cars instead of making six that will fit six different applications, like the originals, they make one to "kind of fit" six applications.

2nd gen Montes had a shelf built into the shroud to support the long hose. None of the hoses I found & tried are made to sit on this shelf. And this pisses me off!
