Pirex Glass
« on: August 23, 2013, 05:17:08 PM »
Anyone here run or had anything to do with the pirex coolant glass just above the water pump? Looking to dump that clamp on hose cover with something else.

Cool. No issues with changing the upper pipe height with this install?
Haven't decided between the SS braid or the pirex but one thing for sure is that mickey mouse clamp on plastic cover needs to go.

Nope they went in fine and with no height issue.  Those clamps do suck.
