hey guys...yesterday i put my new motor and T5 into my EF...im just stuck on a few little things. the 2 metal cooling pipes ( one goes from the water pump around the block and stops under the intake and the other comes from the thermostast housing and stop mid way under the intake ) they both have a little pipe coming off them them...im just wondering if they join together or go some where els?

there appears to be a vacume hose that comes from infront of where the air box sits...dose any one know where that goes?

and last but not least.

what should i use to make sure those metal cooling pipes wont leak from the water pump and thermostat housing?

Q) The 2 metal cooling pipes ( one goes from the water pump around the block and stops under the intake and the other comes from the thermostast housing and stop mid way under the intake ) they both have a little pipe coming off them them...im just wondering if they join together or go some where else?
A) These 2 pipes are connetcted with a short peice of Heater Hose.

Q) There appears to be a vacume hose that comes from infront of where the air box sits...dose any one know where that goes?
A) This would probably be the vapour hose that connets to the Fuel vapour vent Cannister in the left front guard.

Q) What should i use to make sure those metal cooling pipes wont leak from the water pump and thermostat housing?
A) Use O rings, get the ones from FORD, use the BA ones, they are green. Put a touch of silicon on them when you fit them.
