Default V(7) Mount water pump neck halp

Before I give in and start cutting and welding, I'll ask the question to see if anybody has found something that will help me out.

I'm looking for a water neck that will mount directly to the side of the water pump to replace the one shown in the pictures below. The one I have will work, but hose routing would be cleaner with one like I am looking for. Ideally, it would be one that has a neck pointing straight out perpendicular to the mating surface like this:


Or if somebody knows somewhere that lists dimensions for water necks. I've already tried the local parts stores, but unfortunately they don't have a "water neck" section. Their parts are all over the place and I'm over the "if you know what car, I can help you out".

The thermostat housings all fit but you'd need to make a gasket plate to go in between because the hole on the thermostat housing is larger than the sealing surface on the water pump.

Hi_Im_Sean made some nice billet necks exactly like this which had ports for the heater core and thermostat hose. You can do a search or shoot him a PM to see what I mean

See if he has any available, otherwise draw something up and have it machined locally.

this ugly bastard lol

It works as designed but man exposed threads are nasty (aesthetically speaking). Should not have been cheap, I was worried about material and cycle time.
