    rover v8 radiator question.

    What size inlet top hose and outlet bottom hose should be on a radiator to suit rover v8? I think I was told 35mm but not sure now. Could anyone confirm what size the should be.

    Just checked, mines a 3.5 litre and has 35mm top and bottom on the rover rad. 40mm water pump spout, 38mm outlet at the engine

    Cheers lads. So 35mm inlet and outlet on the rad should be ok then.

    You will need a stepped hose on the bottom to pump then 35-40 , so I would check your water pump 1st mine is 40mm so I had my rad made with a 40 mm bottom pipe so hose was easier
