    I have gasser radiator on my K5,untill I find one for 6.2.
    It has smaller water necks than diesel rad,so I took gassers radiator hose and cut a short sleeve from it.The I just slipped it to a lower water neck,radiator hose over that,and tightened the clamp.So far,no leaks.
    Upper hose I had to make from a 5.7DX lower hose because gasser has narrower radiator than 6.2D,and because of that,couldn't use upper diesel hose.

    If the difference is only a few millimeter, there are special hose clamps for it, which wedge at their entire extent. Ask in your tool shop.
