Shedding tears over heater hose!
#1
Hi there, I took the engine out of my 73 vert to clean and paint the engine bay. I decided since the heater hoses were well.... old.... I would replace them when I reinstall engine. To my surprise the old ones were probably original since they were Motorcraft. I felt bad having to change from the original, but I want to drive the car a long distance this summer, so I suppose it is best. It just seems a shame!!!!

You can purchase Concours correct hoses from places like Marti Auto.
I understand what you mean. When we replaced the valve covers and
air cleaner for cosmetic reasons I kept the original parts.

I don't still have the original light bulbs in my car. Things wear and dependability demands we replace them. If your full concourse save them and put them on for the judging. As far as driving with them, nothing brings a tear like the smell of antifreeze vaporizing all over the engine compartment while the temperature gauge goes up.

Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
