The internal-combustion engine has been around for more than 100 years. In that time, we haven't progressed much when it comes to coolant systems and hoses. We were using rubber hoses 100 years ago when Henry Ford founded Ford Motor Company, and we're still using them today. Owners have certainly found at least one upgrade to the dilemma of coolant containment in the Cool-Flex cooling-system hose from Inglese Cool-Flex.

The Inglese Cool-Flex radiator hose isn't really a hose at all. It's a flexible, corrugated copper tube that does a better job of keeping coolant where it belongs. It flexes with the engine's movement, yet looks terrific. It will bend to just about any position and application. It won't collapse and is not adversely affected by vibration or extreme changes in temperature. And the Cool-Flex hoses will outlast your Mustang's engine.

The correct name for this tube is the Cool-Flex Fluid Transfer Hose, and we're going to show you how to install it.
