    The "Y" hose connection in the water pump looks like one I found in some of my stuff!

    A look at your engine does not show where it is routed?

    Did you "keep" it in use? If so, where does the hose(s) go to?

    Just to clarify.. Its actually the factory correct location for series I/II. It might be the reason they relocated to the scuttle brace on series 3 onwards.

    I never had one fail even as a daily driver .. But the location makes it a real PITA to polish the rocker cover behind the bracket

    Dan,
    This is far from done since I don't have hoses connected yet along with several other items. If you look on the right side of the fire wall you'll see the heater control valve. There is a hose running from the valve to the fitting on the left side of the head. The hose from the other side of the heater core runs to the top of the Y fitting. There is a hose hooked to the bottom of the Y that runs to the fitting on the intake manifold which allows water to pass thru the intake and out 105_0006.JPG the tube on the back of the intake into the water jacket around #4 cylinder. This photo of one of my other cars may help.

    I have to agree that a RHD car complicates getting to some things on the right side of the engine due to the brake and clutch masters being on the right side plus being a LeMans it has a C/D booster which required Harrington to move the horn from the frame rail to the scuttle brace. Not much room to work.

    Dan,
    The "Y" was used on all cars thru series 4 production for routing coolant thru the intake. It was dropped with the change to the Strombergs on the series 5

    Dan,
    It's been a tough restoration. Ian had everything in boxes except the drive train which was bolted in place. All of the drive train had to be rebuilt along with everything else on the car. There was no interior except for the back seat, the seat frames and the 100_0623.JPG 100_0627.JPG dash which I didn't use. I made a trip to Reno to pick up the car.
