PCM parts

2Valve2Valve Posts: 86 Baller
I have an older PCM based boat (2002 5.7L HO) that I'm having trouble finding coolant hoses for. I had Miami Nautique send me a set, but the bends were all wrong.

Nothing's broken, I just want to change them out due to age and hours (860).

Any advice would be appreciated.

    You could take the hose to NAPA or other auto stores to mach to something close may have to cut ends to length. Some stores will let look through the hoses in there store room. I have had to do this in the past restoring old cars.

    +2 on @Orlando76 recommendation with

    I called them up and needed all of the water hoses for my 02 and they told me exactly what I needed from the molded hoses to the generic 1".

    Thanks everyone. I'll try the NAPA route first and go from there.

    I'm good with cutting hoses and modifying "shee-nery".

    SkiDim knows their stuff. Best to avoid auto parts in marine applications.

    Skidim is great. Last week I ordered everything thing for a tune up. I called because I wanted to make sure to get the right parts. Guy gave me every part number so I could order on there website and save 10% Couldn't do the discount on phone orders.

    You pretty much have to call them because their website is so bad. I've got a couple things from skidim, but 90% of the time you can't find what you need unless you happen to already know the exact part number.

    Thanks for the updated info. I'll call SKIDIM. Agreed, their website is tough to use.

    @oldjeep It is kind of comedic how bad the site is, and they seem to use their own parts number system so you cannot necessarily cross reference from other sites to theirs.

    I don’t have much trouble finding what I need on their site but I forgot how much trouble I seem to have on actually placing the order. Either way I speed dial Vince and they have all my info on file. Thirty second conversation and it’s on my way. I’ll place an order at 11:50 am on Wednesday (they’re in SC) Friday it’s on my doorstep in Orlando every time.
