Non Holy Grail LT1 Hoses

When wintering the LT1 back in November, I notice the water intake hose where it connects to the hull of the boat was crumbling on the edges. It may have been fine but it looked like it was time for replacing. It took about 20 minutes to remove the hose as it seemed it was either glued to the fitting or just really stuck. But either way, I managed to remove it from the intake fitting.

Since we got the 2 holy grail hose issue solved by Mike G this past year and I replaced both my trans cooler hoses, the thought came to mind this spring to just replace any remaining hoses since the 190 will turn 22 years old this year.

I think the remaining hoses can be purchased at Napa but I found this picture on the LT1 Holy Grail thread (sorry for "borrowing" this pic ) but I want to get hoses like this that have a little bit of color to them. I searched the company on the web and saw that they were in Sun Prairie, WI but their website seems to be dead.

Any ideas on leads for hoses other than the standard black? Not too crazy about the mesh-type hoses as another TMC member used...just something in the middle. Also, what PSI do these hoses need to be?

I have the link for the cool looking hose clamps...they are here:

Thanks guys!

Also give Royal Brass and Hose in Knoxville a call. Their site does not show the hose you are looking for but several guys around here have gone there and found scrap pieces that were just right.

It's all I got. Neither of these engines are mine. The first one is Teen Squawk member Seacup's engine


The red color-stamped hose came from Royal Brass. The blue color-stamped hose came from Fisheries.

Last I spoke to him was about a year ago. I never did get to make a MM event, but if there were ever another I'd absolutely do my best to make it.

What are the PSIs of the hoses for an LT1 (Intake, 2 uppers and 1 lower)?

Based on the original picture, looks to be 150 for the uppers and 170 for the lower...anyone have any verification or advise?

Sorry, can't get to the motor right now to check what is on the original hoses I have.
