Pinto coolant pipes

Having recently acquired a new car running a Pinto one of the first things I need to do is to replace all of the coolant pipes. Does anyone have a diagram showing pipe ID's so I can order new shiny bits without having to dismantle what's there first ?

Thanks,

Ian

Need to check but top of head
Thermostat to radiator top hose is 32mm to 32mm
Bottom hose is 38mm out of pump and 32mm at the radiator

That's as I recall it from my Pinto MK Indy build using a VW Polo radiator.

IIRC the part I struggled with was a fairly tight bend on the lower radiator pipe. A local motor factor let me rummage through their stock to find what I was after in the end.
