Lightbulb '64 Water By-Pass Pipe

I'm going to try a "jumpstart" a thread for a new member (felgoodtx) on here. He is my neighbor, Chris, across the street, & boy is he itching to get his "newly aquired" '64 hardtop to a big cruise this coming weekend. 390cid of course.

He has replaced the waterpump & thermostat with new parts. Coming from a past "GM" shadetree mechanical background, these old Ford's are a new learning curve for him.

He has now learned about that real bear of a water by-pass hose Ford uses between the intake manifold & waterpump. His is corroded so bad & leaking, it needs to be removed & replaced.

Short of buying a new Edelbrock aluminumreplacement intake manifold what are his other "OE" options?? I've never had to replace this "pipe fitting" barb tapped or pressed into one of our stock cast intake manifolds.


Chris, if I left anything out you can comment or select "POST REPLY" at the bottom left of this window....
