replacing/upgrading heater hoses

Recommended Posts

I need to replace some heater hoses. One of the two that run along the valve cover has the AMC logo! As faded as it looks, I imagine it's original.


For now I'll stick with having a stock closed system. It is feasible or advisable to cut the hoses off the metal pipes where they are currently crimped on? Can I cut them off with a Dremel or other tool without ruining the pipe? Or is buying a replacement pipe with integrated hoses recommended?


I've read where some ditch the Heater Control Valve. What effect does that have on the heater operation if I ditch it?


Too many black noodles under the hood...
