RE: coolant loss

Both of my MC donor motors for my 4ktq conversion have typical NE rot.  (No comments
necessary from you, Bruce Bell, or other Steamboat attendees).  And on both, the solid
portion of the turbo coolant feed line are what I would categorize as less than solid.  I have
purchased the metal portion of the feed line, at ~$60, but have no plans on replacing the
plastic lined rubber hose or the banjo fitting itself.

On the turbo coolant return line, neither metal or rubber/plastic portions are in bad condition.
I would only replace these pieces if I was worried about the connection to the turbo, or if
the plastic\rubber piece appeared visibly damaged or heavily worn.

HTH with another data point from rusty NE...
