Gday all - just a quick one this time...

Who knows the diameter of the water hoses going in and out of the throttle body assembly on a EB XR8? I was poking about last night and located the leak which caused the demise of my starter motor. It had a pinhole leak which was dripping ever so slowly onto the manifold below and then ultimately onto the starter.

Any help would be fab...

Yours, Aye

Big thanks XR - didntwant to pull it before I knew what it was. I have to work out now how to get my mits down into the back of the manifold to remove it(SVI plumbing).

Good week-end job for me(that and getting the 1977 mini motor back in the shell)

No wuckers, btw it's actually EGR plate cooling.
