OK, so, like the conscientious owner you are, you drain the cooling system every other year just like you should.
And before you refill with the anti-freeze mix, you check the condition of the hoses.
I mean, you take them off, remove the cruddy protector springs so that you can examine the outside for cracking; then you carefully check the inside for the deterioration that can and does happen over time. No, You Don't!
You just blithely assume because they are not ACTUALLY leaking right now, that all is well with what are, in all probability, the original OEM 30 odd year hoses.
So how many other 30 odd year old items do you own that have had 90C hot liquid coursing through them under pressure?
Ever had a washing machine hose go? Bet that wasn't 30 years old!
Ever had a bottom hose go and dump slippery anti-freeze mix right under your back tyre?
YeeeHaaa, ride'em Cowboy! Right into the nearest ditch!
