Body Lift Upper Rad. Hose help

I got my truck running again, but it lasted only about 20 minutes, I took it down my road came home, saw a small drip from the upper radiator hose were there is a union that was installed so the hose did not hit the belt, and so it went above the alternator instead of through the belt. Here is the best picture I got anyways of what the line looks like. The union was basically directly above the alternator pulley, you can see the clamp.


I went ahead to tighten it, and it got worse. So I go to take the union out, and the damn thing cracks in half. I have tried every parts house between my house and work(quite a few of them), home depot, lowes to try and find the union. I have had no luck at all.

Anyone got an idea of where to find this 1.5" barbed plastic union at, or to those who have done it, what did you do to the upper line to make it work? I am trying to stay away from using a piece of exhaust pipe, but if all else fails I will have to.

Re: Body Lift Upper Rad. Hose help

I think my kit came with a new hose....or atleast the part number to use.

Have you tried calling Performance Accessories?

Mine was a Performance Accessories 3" kit for F250/350 gassers. It has since been removed.

Im not sure if thats the kit my truck has, I bought the truck with the lift on it. I should have asked more questions when I bought it. Ill try to calling them or doing what hotrodtractor said, since I thinking trying to find this union piece is going to be a bit harder than a planned.

The coolant doesn't seep out on you does it? That what I was worried about, which is why I was trying to get another barbed fitting. I may just try this route, but I was concerned about it leaking.

Re: Body Lift Upper Rad. Hose help

Nope, I've done lots of things to that setup but the coolant doesn't leak at that location

Just be carefull and keep the hose away from the pulley, remember the motor moves around when running so when it torques up its going right for that hose. Make sure you have enough room there. Mine got close once and I have a little rub mark to show it, but I caught it in time to correct.
