pluming the T7 heater

Hi All
At long last I managed to buy a T7 hear thank you all for your advise .
As the bore diameter for hose from the engine is 16 mm and the heater is 13 mm not sure if I should use a reducer or make up the difference with a small piece of 13 mm hose may be the latter method is not very safe!

Please tell me what you think or how you did it with your T7 heater?

Not used one myself, but I'd plumb it with a reducer. I'd feel it was done properly that way and less likely to leak.

Thanks for your response I certainly will not use the latter method, the T7 design looks really good but out of stock not sure how long I will have wait,

Thanks again

It looks like it is going to be CBS as the other one is out of stock. Thanks for all your replies

Thanks again do you think alloy one is better I was going for the CBS one because it will cover the existing hole, however if it means alloy one is better in the long term that is what it will be?

yes I see your point, TBH that is more suitable for me, but would the plastic not eventually become brittle and crack?

Depends on the quality! If OEM quality I would be happy.
