I'd be replacing all your under manifold coolant hoses at least.

They'll be 3/4" (19mm), places like supercrap auto do have premoulded hose lengths with bends to suit the heater.
The small hose that goes between the front and rear engine pipes is 3/8" (10mm).

If your running an LPG converter, the hoses will most likely be 5/8" (16mm), otherwise the Tickford setups run 3/8" hoses from memory.
