RT, I just found that photo on the internet...it was too damn cold outside to go take a picture of mine :winking:You can always say it was too damn cold to slide under and look!
On your hose picture - Yours is a perfect example of this. Diesels vibrate. Anytime a hose is next to something hard, it will wear through. The driver's side CAC hose is one example. The pressure hose out of the power steering pump is one. And this hose is one. See where that cool metal recess in the alternator mount hugs the hose? You can make out its impression on your upper hose already. Wrap that portion of the hose with a few layers of bicycle inner tube and zip tie that puppy into the recess to keep it from bouncing into the fan belt.
On a side note - your hose looks like its sucked in pretty good. Why are you running a vacuum on your cooling system?
