    I put a motor in my truck just over a year ago and while just doing a regular inspection of everything under the hood I found that the upper radiator hose is rubbing against the fan shourd. Can anyone post a pic of the vortec 350 so I can see how there's is ran just to make sure I have got this right cuz I don't want a hose blowing on me.

    Easy fix if you have an old radiator hose laying around...cut a 3 to 4 inch section off the old hose, split it long ways and wrap it around the radiator hose where it makes contact with the shroud, then use a couple of zip ties to hold it in place. My upper radiator hose on both of my '89's makes contact with the shroud, this is what I did to ensure the hose does not fail.
