[DML] Re: Driver side water pump coolant hose

The coolant hoses I got were from DMC houston, but the
main point that seems to be in agreement here is that
the hoses are not the shape/size they should be. It
appears the hose does enters into a 90 degree bend too
far from the water pump causing the hose to ride too
close the the AC compressor and belt. The metal
standoff bracket only serves to cause a crimp in this

The hose the previous owner used had a section removed
and the two halves reconnected via a coupler. That
modification made the hose fit pefectly, plenty of
clearance from the rear wall and more than enough
clearance from the AC belt. 

I've found that using a little antifreeze as a
lubricant works well, with the exception of water pump
because the connection is so tight. When it comes to
that I used a very small amount of a non-petrolium
based synthetic grease around the water pump.
