If you want a full set, Samco do silicone rubber sets in various colours, sold through their agents Amber Performance. http://www.amber-performance.co.uk/sect ... 88&xPage=1

See topics like viewtopic.php?f=134&t=23323&p=310065&hilit=Samco#p310065 or viewtopic.php?f=44&t=5535&p=316085&hilit=Samco#p316085 .

If you just need one hose, you might be lucky in the "aftersales " reduced items list from any Lotus dealer, or by contacting SJ Sportscars or SW Lotus. See viewtopic.php?f=129&t=21104&hilit=aftersales&start=40 and http://www.sjsportscars.co.uk/index.php?mod=10 .

Quite a few of us are running with the Samco hoses. I've had a set fitted for nearly 8 years with no problems. Amber Performance were giving very good discounts back in 2008. Total bill inc. a full set of s/s jubilee clips, VAT and postage was a fraction under £221 :wink:

The Samco hose kit for the coolant fits nicely and does the job perfectly. I placed many hose kits with excellent results and I would buy again.
That said...

Don't expect any help from Amber if something goes awry with your order though :evil:
Take great care however NOT to order the induction kit as well. :chair:
