Coolant Line Routing


Recommended Posts

In doing my 5-year rubber changeout, I came across a situation and would appreciate feedback. The original routing of two coolant lines from the water pump to cylinders #2 & #4 seems a little weird.

If I follow the original path, the lines are squeezed thru the engine mounting frame (as they connect upper and lower water pump ports to cylinders #2 & #4).

The path does not impede fluid flow but it does seem to encourage chafing.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Do you use any anti

Yes, the hoses need to pass through the mount. I don't particularly like the way they are, but I don't think there is any better option. 

Do you use anything to prevent chaffing? I put a short piece of plastic tubing on mounting frame above and below the lines. Not sure if it'll do much good.
