Just wondering how different the radiator hoses are on a 1.3 compared to 1.0. Would like to find some silicone hoses for my 1.0 but all I've seen are ones for the 1.3.
Is there that big of a difference in routing that the 1.3 hoses can't be retrofitted to use on a 1.0?
If so, Does anyone make silicone hoses for the 1.0 that I may have overlooked?

There are differences between 1.0l and 1.3l, '89-'94, '95+, auto vs. stick,
The connections are the same "sizes" when it comes to engine and radiator though...
Just the length and bend vary...
Best guess would to go to rockauto and research and find what is best fit for you and your project...

I know there is a 'slight' difference between the 1.0 auto and manual but We swapped a 5 speed into an auto 1.0 and used the same hoses so they're not that different. Just curious how much different the 1.3 hoses are. A silicone hose set for the 1.3 is only $35 on eBay that's why I was wondering how much different the bends were and if they could be 'made to work'
