Just wondering what hoses are everyone using for their Holden 304 conversions with a TD42 radiator?

Top ???

i think most put the petrol rads in as the hoses are on the same side as the v8's.

The diesels have the connections on the correct side, the petrols are opposite.
I'm just not sure what hoses to use though especially on the bottom of the radiator as it has a slightly upwards fitting but the Holden hose has a straight section. I also have the alternator lowered to clear the Nissan power steering (Marks kit) so I couldn't use the Holden or Nissan hose anyway...

ETA: I have read somewhere that a Holden VL V8 hose off the engine adapted to a EA-EL Falcon 6 cylinder off the radiator will work with a bit of cutting and fiddling. Anyone done this?
