    Hello,
    What is that thing that sticks out of the intake right by the thermostat housing? It is about 3" and has I believe 4 or 5 point sticking out from it. It is on the left side of the housing (pass side). I went off-roading last night and I threw belts and over heated and water and coolant where pissing out of this thing onto my engine.

    If you need to pass emissions , replace it . If not a concern or they don't check , reroute the hoses without it , and go to the parts store and buy a pipe plug . I went a got a 1970 c-10 water neck , and it came with only one hole and a plug , thats what I used , 10 bucks at the parts store /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
