    OK guys..Who has a GOOD method for making the larger B16 Top radiator hose fit the smaller 89 Si radiator inlet. I slipped 2 layers of innertube over the inlet to shim it up but I'm not very happy with that even though it doesn't leak. <_<

    why dont you use ladder hose clamps ? you know the one with a screw on it so it can get tighter and tighter?? i wouldnt trust using spacers or somethign to fill the gap up cuz under pressure it could pop off.

    I just had my water neck off the D series cut off, and welded to the cut off B series water neck.

    Then I just got a hose that fit on both ends and was good to go. ;)

    I think it's like a 90 model Accord Rad hose that ended up fitting. :p
