Heater hose size? CJ-7 w/ 258
Hi all. What size are the heater hoses on my '83 CJ-7/258? The heater core seems to be 5/8", as well as the connections on the front and rear of the intake manifold. But the connections on the water pump and thermostat housing are 3/4"?! Are there some wacky molded hoses that I should be buying or do I just get 3/4" hose and crank it down tight on the 5/8" connectors (doesen't seem right[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img])? And just to double check, here are my hose routings...Thanks!
1.) Thermostat housing to front of intake manifold
2.) water pump to top heater core fitting
3.) rear of intake manifold to bottom heater core ftting
