Trying to straighten out all the connection from the previous owner's installation of a crate motor. My bottom heater hose goes to the top of the water pump. Where it should go the radiator has a cut piece of hose with soem silicone shoved in it to block it off. On our '81 that hose doesnt go to the pump but the radiator. Should I take that hose off the water pump and put it back on the radiator? June 2001 - The Texas Sawz All masacre begins. Be afraid rust, be very afraid.
