Upper Radiator Hose Inner Diameter

For the last week i have been trying to find out what the "inner" hose diameter size is on the upper radiator hose on 3.8 v6 cars without having to go yank one out, but to no avail.
Im going to add a temp gauge(more of a multi digital gauge thingy) since they didnt have one in 83 and wanted to get one of those aluminum housings you T into the cooling hoses for the temp sender to go into, which come in many sizes, but am waiting untill i found the hose size.
Does anyone happen to know what the size is?
