130TC Coolant Hose Kits

Hi guys - first time post ! Just checking-in if anyone knows of where to get a hold of those 130TC coolant hose kits that were available on ebay a few months back. These were the kits available in different colours for around 220 pounds from memory. Cheers ! Hamish (red 130TC Auckland NZ)

Re: 130TC Coolant Hose Kits

Can't help with the hose kit you refer to. However this is the hose info and what I did on our 130TC.

New Top Rad. Hose - Gates P/N.VF273, 32mm id x 500mm, universal
Fiat P/N.5981904 (NLA)

New Bottom Rad. Hose - Gates P/N.VF243, 32mm id x 400mm. universal
Fiat P/N.5981903 (NLA)
Note: Thermostat end has to be stretched from 32mm to 35/35mm.

Cylinder Head Top Hose Large, id 32mm, od 40mm, l 160mm,
Type 23 Water Hose
Fiat P/N.5960263 (NLA)

Cylinder Head Top Hose Small, id 16mm, od 24mm, l 100mm,
Type 23 Water Hose
Fiat P/N.5927738 (NLA)

Thermostat To Pump Hose, id 35mm, od 46mm, l 90mm,
Radiator Hose
Fiat P/N.10134687 (NLA)

Thermostat Top Stubby/Stepped Hose, id 25mm, id 35mm, l 135mm
Custom Made Stepped Hose
Fiat P/N.4441794 (NLA)

This stubby stepped hose can be self made by using suitable pieces of water hose one inserted inside the other. NOTE for this to work you need to ensure that inner (top) hose does not have an "in wall" cloth braiding but it a full solid rubber wall otherwise the coolant will wick and seep up the braid due to the exposed end in the coolant.

All the above will cost very much less than 200.

Re: 130TC Coolant Hose Kits

No not really.

I think you need to focus on the hose internal diameters and lengths. Also the top and bottom radiator hoses have to be flexible.

You can work from there, as I did.

I'm told the VW Gold top rad hose works/fits the 130TC but I have no personal experience.

You must have rubber hose suppliers (ignore automotive specialists) that stock a huge range of hose gauges. Also many industrial hose suppliers can produce custom mandrel/hand formed hoses for very competitive prices if you are prepared to wait and be a "slack production" customer.

This what I did with the thermostat stepped hose. Got two made for the price of one.

My post has the dimensions. Lengths are flexible but if you take any rubber hose and try to match it to where you want a hose to fit then you will get both length and flexibility guidelines to work from.

Re: 130TC Coolant Hose Kits

The kits which I believe you refer to were an offer in 2015/2016 from the site owner of The Strada OC of the UK- they were also offered (along with other bits eg carb mounting plates) on ebay. I no longer have a 130TC so I don't know whether the kits- they were silicone hoses in a choice of colours- are still available.

You could apply to join www.strada130.co.uk and look then in the New 130TC Parts section or contact the site owner for an update.

Good luck

The site referenced has be dead and neglected for two years+ now. I get reports of people trying to register but they never hear back. If it is still active then they have chosen to go "dark" and self serving?

You are better off here

Hi Nick. I know from our past messaging of some of your issues with M. Though I no longer have my 130TC, I'm still registered at that site, but not active--- though I check it out occasionally.It IS very quiet.The last NEW member is shown as registered Nov2016, and there are less than 270 members in total.

As to whether the OP on this thread would receive any reply I'm unaware.I was just letting him know where the stuff he referred to originated. The stuff was advertised on ebay too, I seem to recall seeing it listed under a couple of posting names; one was something like fiatalfacolosuono or similar, the other I think as per the OC name

It is POSSIBLE that there may be some of the hose kits kicking around which that person (who I have also seen as posting occasionally on here) wants to clear- though they were being listed on the OC as to preorder, but that seems to be at conflict with them also coming up on ebay

To the OP I wish you well in your search.

I still have a couple of brand new still sealed original 130TC body kit plastic panels and 4 brand new original red plastic Solex 40 ram pipes plus other bits I will be trying to dispose of in the next few months, if anyone reads this and wants to contact me re them for further details....

Re: 130TC Coolant Hose Kits

Myself and M set up that site back in 2006 . In 2010 everything went pearshaped and most of the members were well aware what happened with many memebers accounts deleted . After that it went downhill I have not been on the site since 2010 . Funny thing somebody contacted me last year through a friend actually looking to buy a Strada Abarth 130TC and the strada onwers site came up in the conversation . Apparently the guy running the site now wanted a lot of personal infromation to join the site and a good reason .To me this is not normal as i am on many car sites and would never disclose personal info to anyone To this day i dont know if he joined or not in the end . The guy running the site used to sell alot of secondhand and new stuff on ebay under various ebay accounts .
