I may annoy some by asking yet another coolant reroute question, but at least I have made a sweet schematic. Got to be worth something...
Heres the setup:
-Escort GT engine ('94)
-1.6 Waterneck on back of cylinder head (attached to moss spacer)
-Thermostat in stock Escort location
-Street driven car - want to keep heater core and Idle control valve
-Not put together yet - engine is getting a stock rebuild before going in the car.
So, the question is: Is this going to work? Looks like it might be a real pain to get the oil cooler routed back to the heater core. Have to go under the oil pan.
I have already drilled and tapped the head for the 5/8" fitting, but after making the schematic, it looks like I will need to plug it. I think that using the stock escort 5/8 hose going to the oil cooler, in parallel with the new 5/8" fitting drilled in the head would cause too much bypass.
Any better ideas?
