This hose kit is for all 4 cylinder Subaru Vanagons with a reversed coolant manifold. 4 cylinder cars that do not have a reversed manifold and 3.3L powered Vanagons should use our Turbo and 3.3L Coolant Hose Kit. The kit works best with our coolant manifold modifications and with the coolant reservoir on the right side of the engine compartment.

This kit utilizes our experience from completing over 300 Subaru conversions and provides a cooling system that is easily bled, a heater system that works perfectly, and a cool running engine. When we install an engine here, we use a new OEM radiator and the arrangement works better than the factory cooling system.

This kit includes:

  • Special stainless tee 1 1/4" X 3/4"
  • Thermostat to tee hose
  • Tee to reservoir hose
  • Tee to Vanagon pipe hose
  • Water manifold to pipe hose
  • 5/8" heater hose
  • 12 hose clamps

1983-1985 Vangons will need:

  • The original front-rear coolant pipes replaced with the later pipes or the originals shortened in the rear about 6 inches to a length roughly matching the later model Vanagons
  • (1) Hose Reducer
  • '86-'91 Coolant Reservoir
  • Coolant Reservoir Bracket
