Any chance for a picture?Well, I deleted mine and my heater core because my car is not a daily driver. If you delete it, you will need to connect the "y" pipe that connects to the back ends of the cooling vanes directly to the pipe that runs from the back of the engine to the water pump. Not difficult.
A picture of my car would not do you much good, as I had my cooling vanes welded up and plugged the opening in my water pump. There are some pics of it on the board from last year sometime. The vastly easier approach is what I described, viz., delete the heater valve and connect the cooling vane outlets directly to the pipe that runs from the heater core to the water pump. I'll see if I can find the realOEM diagram.Any chance for a picture?
