Modify discontinued coolant hose

We have a 1984 Lehman Peugeot that has a torn hose caused by the belt rubbing against it. Unfortunately, this hose is no longer manufactured. The hole is close to the expansion tank, rather than the thermostat end, so we were thinking of ways we can add some sort of a coupler to reuse the same hose, keeping the other end undisturbed. We have rescue tape on there now but need a more permanent solution. Of course we will also need to figure out a way for the expansion tank to move further away so it doesn’t happen again. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Modify discontinued coolant hose

go to an auto parts store and ask to browse through their radiator hoses, you'll most likely find the bend/size you need with some extra hose attached. Cut off the extra and use the new hose.

Re: Modify discontinued coolant hose

Some pictures would be nice...

Maybe the car part / tuning store can be of help, there is a wide variety of aftermarket Coolant Hoses / Bends, maybe you can find something that fits / can be modified to fit.
