I believe some people have just made their own using an adapter where it changes sizes. Bernie might have done this or I might be thinking about the crankcase breather hose - another expensive hose.

Subject: Coolant Hoses
I've found a brand spanking new 3b short block for my 200 tqa. I want to
make everything as nice as I can when I put it back together but there is no
way I can justify $350 for a hose kit or $130 for just the upper hose from
Blau. Is there anywhere to get this upper hose for reasonable $$? I've found the
10v upper hose for I think around $30 and it looks similar. The t-stat
housing hose is readily available for $6.
I don't understand the outrageous pricing on the upper hose. Looks like the
rest of the hoses are just straight sections of hose that can be bought in
bulk. I'm thinking about just cutting the stretched parts off but it looks
like I'd have to lose about 1 1/2 inches from each end.
