I'm new to Spitfires, but it appears that there is some difference between
the 1500 motor/motormounts and the earlier motor or motormounts, and the
1500 version rubs or almost rubs the hose. Because you have an earlier car
perhaps you can't even see why this would be a problem. On my car the lower
radiator outlet points right at the motormount, and is just a few inches away.
