So you don't think you have room to go under the intake and outside of the alternator? Either inside or outside of the intake manifold support bracket? Maybe with some bends?

Sorry about your temperature sending unit for your gauge. They are delicate devices.

Edit: Or even under the alternator? You are just going to make me go outside and climb under my car, aren't you?

Please don't go outside and climb under your car. I'll check tomorrow once they put my engine back in the car but I know for sure that it won't fit on the hotside. I'll try to take pics with the engine in the car.

Thanks shooter.

Where do you get them? Would an autoparts store have them? Is it a common size? I searched ebay and came up with nothing for 30 or 35mm. Thanks for the help.

Do you have part numbers?

No, I do not. I got mine off eBay, and I expect that a trip through ye olde' boneyard would produce several as well.

Bruce, I just got in touch with my mechanic by phone. They had it made here in aluminum for cheap. I can have them made 5 or 6 more for real cheap but I'm going to need dimensions because mine is already plugged.

So this thread pretty much turned into the Rafa's coolant reroute thread, which is cool. But I wanna know how I would route it on mine keeping the heater core. Can we get one of those nifty diagrams showing which way the coolant flows? I know it was under another thread, but searching every thread that has coolant reroute in it might take a while.

Pretty much i wanna know exactly what parts would be needed, what has to be routed/ relocated, where do temp sensors go, etc. Sorry Rafa.

Something like this... I think. Might want to wait til someone confirms before you go trying it though.

What? As usual, I have no clue about what you're talking about.

Which water line?

What do you mean by spinning my water pump?

That was the routing I had in my car with no big issues before I built my motor.

in this pic, it looks like the line is resting on the pulley.

Scott; you scared the **** out of me!

No, that line was just resting there. The build wasn't finished.

BTW, I'll take some pics tomorrow. I can't put the pipe where yours is. I'll have to look for other options. I've got the BOV and intercooler piping interfering. I suppose we'll end up moving the IC pipe to get some room.

Thanks
