Water 'rails' on the 351c
Hi all ,..
Just wondering about something that we had planned for the clevo.
We are planning to run 4 stainless water 'rail's (think tubes with fittings - similar to a fuel rail) down the block of the clevo, just above the intake manifold bolts.
2 will be for the heater, and 2 for the outlets at the rear of the heads.
We understand that the 2 out of the rear of the heads will come up through the intake manifold behind the rear bolts, and we are planning to get an angles fitting and run the rails at that height all the way to the front of the block.
We have been thinking of running both contents on the same sides though, .. ie: heater, heater on the left, head head on the right, as this will make it easier when entering the water pump for the heater lines.
my thoughts are : do the 'head' rails (being the highest point in the radiator system) pose a concern?
I am aware that air will 'pool' there when the car is off, .. will this cause air locks? ..
or will the pressure exerted from the rear of the heads be enough to overcome this concern?
hmm .. just curious thats all ..
