I have a 87 Si that I need to replace all the radiator hoses on. From what I gather, Honda is no longer supplying them.

So, how's the fitment of hoses like Gates? In the past, I never used Gates or others OEM because if I did, they were always slightly off. Anyone have any recent experiences?

Also, my AC system is getting a bit weak, so I'll need to freshen it up with at least a new reciever/drier and expansion valve, new o-rings and possibly some new hoses. These are all also no longer available by Honda, so I'll need to use aftermarket here also. Anyone done this yet and have any opinion of the aftermarket stuff??

Gates

French company their parts for hoses and timing belts I would say better than oem quality from Honda and best of any 3rd party makes available. So go with it one suggestion use stainless steel jubilee clips that way they won't rust or corrode and if you need to take them off in future much easier to do so!
