Re: quick ?, heater core hose routing with blower intake

Not quick but normal heater hose routing is thru the last two you mentioned, w/pump and front manifold port.

If you want to pick up a little more cooling, you can plumb those two rear intake ports (3/8" npt?) to the t-stat housing .
That rear area of the heads is a hot spot and by adding some circulation, you pick up some cooling.

Re: quick ?, heater core hose routing with blower intake

One hose line goes to the water pump and one to the front intake manifold. That is how you need to hook up for your heater. What I think Don added was a fix to help with extra cooling for the heads themselves. And that would be from the rear intake ports to the thermostat housing. And you may or may not have a housing that has a port to do this. I do not have a heater only, but if it's like the VA system the top core outlet would go to the manifold and bottom to the water pump. Get yourself a AIM manual. It should show hose routing.

my problem is I dont have a port in the front of the intake manifold. The only heater hose locations I have are 2 at the back intake, and 2 on the water pump.

Re: quick ?, heater core hose routing with blower intake

I ran both hoses to my water pump on my big block with the blower. I did not have the fitting on the intake either. The heater works fine except I now have a hole in my heater core. So no heater now. I have both fittings plugged now.
