Team,
For a 78 S&S I want to do some upgrades this winter...
351 W ford motor. Water hoses appear abused and a pending disaster.
Where can I get hoses and what spark plugs do I use (gap?)
Appear to be pretty basic hoses...

You can get all hoses at skidim.com. Spark plugs for my 351PC are Champion RBL11Y, or Autolite ARF32M gapped to .035

As I recall I think they sell the hose by the foot and you can just cut to length. They will be able to tell you how many feet you will need.

Better off measuring yourself and adding a little extra. If they send you a hose 2" too short you are out of luck. I know my luck with the 50/50/90 rule.:D Those new hoses don't always bend the same as one that's been there a while.

Also, most likely there is an industrial gasket and rubber store near you - we have one in Murfreesboro, TN, which is not a huge metropolitan town. They have every type of fuel, exhaust hose and size known to man.
