1957 Eldorado Seville water tubes
« on: February 23, 2016, 12:48:41 PM »
Hello all,

I am helping a buddy with a body off restoration of his 57 Eldorado Seville.  While we are waiting for the arrival of the authenticity manual can anyone tell me what color the water tubes that go under the intake manifold are?

Thank you in advance,
Larry

You mean the transmission cooler hoses...  they're black.  All the hoses were black.  Originally they had 2 sets of 5 or 6 raised lines. 

Make sure you install them back in the U brackets under the manifold so they can't touch any heat source...

thanks.  One looks a bit shiny in only one spot & after getting them glass bead cleaned they are natural.  I assume the brackets are black also?
I am a 56 guy & learning on my 68 convertible.  The 57 is totally different.

The brackets were Cadillac blue.
