    Looking to replace the heater hose on my 92 745T. The factory parts are
    priced out of this world.

    Found hoses by MacKay - an Australian company. They look to be a really good
    mfg. - ISO9002 and all.

    Anyone have any good/ bad experiences with this brand?

    Thanks

    Why don't you get generic heater hose from a local parts place and cut
    it to fit? It's available in a number of diameters; just measure what's
    on your car and get a piece a foot longer than you need. Pick up a pair
    of new smooth-inside hose clamps, too.

    Or, do you mean radiator hose instead of heater hose?

    No - I mean heater hose.

    I know that I can just use plain heater hose. I am just a bit paranoid about
    the cooling system on the Volvo - as I had an overheating problem - and I
    want to get as close to factory as I can. There is a lot of heat from this
    motor, and I want the hose to stand up as long as it can.

    From what I have seen of MacKay - they are an OEM supplier for Ford and
    others. Figured it had to be a bit better than the standard heater hose from
    Auto Zone.

    Thanks for the reply
