Re: lt1 coolant cross over tube help guys plz!

Hey cool: I'm running a '95 LT1 in my '68.

I think the hose from the crossover on back of the heads feeds into the radiator near the cap (passenger side). (I'm running a '95 Camaro radiator so it plugs right in.) The hose goes to a connection on the radiator near the cap.

So, you ought to be able to connect it to the upper hose, which goes to the same side of the radiator as the crossover hose (on mine).
Check this:

Shoebox's web site is INVALUABLE when doing LT1 work.

Good luck!



...late update - it looks like 93-94s dump the crossover to the driver side of the radiator, and the 95-97s dump to the passenger side, so you should be able to connect to either upper or lower hose OK.

ok i see what to do now i see on the diagram im going to tap a hole in the pump and put it to the upper hose so it will feed back into the rad. like this guy did http://www.pro-touring.com/forum/sho...d.php?p=449259 seems to be simple and effective.
