Early 95 Coolant/Radiator Hose Routing

'95 Single Cab 4x4 5spd.

I am having a bit of trouble restoring my cooling system. When I bought this truck, the sneaky seller tried to hide an injector cup issue by disconnecting the overflow reservoir all together. It's no longer connected to anything. I've replaced all my injector cups, water pump and a few other odds and ends, now I want to replace my hoses. This is where I'm getting frustrated.

I have the radiator in this picture:


However, the overflow/degas bottle I have is in this picture:


This lower hose does NOT fit my truck:

This lower hose looks like it WILL fit my truck:

But then where does my overflow tie in? Is there a T I'm missing on my heater hoses? Was an older IDI radiator swapped into it at some point? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't find any diagrams showing the cooling system for early PSD trucks, or pictures showing how the coolant overflow is piped in.

Your truck doesn't have an overflow. That's a later '95 truck with the reservoir, which appears already to be tied to the radiator. Does the radiator also have a cap? If so, it's the wrong radiator. The first lower hose listed should fit the _truck_, it just might not fit the _radiator_.

Edit -- waitaminit -- those are pictures of two different trucks. Which one is yours?

My radiator does have a cap. I know the reservoir is original, with a separate washer tank. Looks like I have frankensteined cooling system. Thank you sir!
