Does anyone have a diagram, or even a picture, showing how the two heater core hoses connect to the coolant pipe that runs on top of the lower intake, to the two heater core inlets on the firewall. I'm not too sure which one goes where? Anyone know which one goes where? Thanks.

Okay, I looked at the pic I have and the left heater hose goes to the top of the coolant pipe on the intake. The right hose goes tothe bottom pipe.

Right and left is referenced from sitting inside the car.

just make sure the one hose has the restrictor (i think thats what its called) in it or it could cause a heater core leak
What is a restrictor and where do you get one from? Which hose does this restrictor go in?

I bought the Good Year Hi Miller hose kit. I'm not too sure if it comes with a restrictor or not.

I picked this up somewhere and can't remember where, so I'll say thanks to the original poster who posted it.

Sitting in the car:
Right heater hose to Top of heater tube= outlet.
Left heater hose to Bottom of heater tube= inlet.
The restrictor fits in the left heater hose or inlet hose.

If you can get your old one out and put it in the new hose that would probably be the easiest. I've never seen one, haven't changed it yet, but I've heard that it is just another smaller piece of hose that fits inside the heater hose tight, don't know what the inside diameter of it is though.

I would use the one from my old hoses except I have no idea where the old hoses are. I guess that's the problem with trying to build a car inside a garage that you are also building. :rolleyes:
Your definitely a glutton for punishment if trying to build a car in a garage that your build on.;)
You can always use a 13MM socket in place of the OE restrictor if that helps you any?

So which one do you hook your radiator flush kit too
