Maintenance and Service
I'm changing out the radiator and heater hoses. Gates lists P/N 28514, Shaping Coil for 1/4" I.D. Hose as applicable for a 98 CR-V.
Is this a need to have part? Nice to have? Forget it?
I don't see these on the existing hoses so I'm guessing that they are not strictly needed, but I am pretty...
