Hi

Need everyone's answers?

Cut the water pump heater pipe behind bracket 1/2 way down block and just have rubber hose under exhaust manifold tempory and have a spare one and cut spare just behind bracket just behind water pump got a couple 90deg copper elbows and brought pipe back out a bit and bought a 3/4 inch brass right angle fitting and got a local radiator shop to weld it all together, also ran new hose right around and ontop away from manifold

Can you flush by tipping watering can of water through with open hoses to run water through

how long would it take to swap the 2 pipes and pull all old hose out and connect new one up and push new pipe in water pump?

How clean do you have to get the water pump heater pipe hole to seal new o ring and heater pipe how long do you have to let the orange gasket maker set before filling.

Also is it normal to hear pressure releasing a little on a 16 psi cap on a ef 6 cyl after a drive

why did you cut the pipe for?

and why are you using 90 deg bends to space the pipe out?


i use a hose from the tap with no nozzle
make sure you have the heater tap on too
