TractTuff J Series RWD Water Pump Inlet - V2
Seeing as how my V2 J Series water neck flanges and/ or anything made using those flanges don't have a means for holding the OEM water pipe, I had to come up with a solution.
The V2 water pump inlet starts with an o-ringed block bushing that has a machined shoulder that registers in the block and has a 1-1/4" counter-bore to receive a 1-1/4" u-bend. The assembly is held in place with a billet teardrop mount that attaches to the driver-side cam gear cover backing plate. The offset position allows for a second hose to come through the valley and works well with my Through Valley Exit Water Neck options.
You can choose between standard hose, -16 male flare, or -20 male flare connections as well as have an accessory bung for the return of coolant from a heater core.
NOTE: Made to Order - Contact for ETA - J Series water pump inlet tube comes very close to the factory intake manifold runners. I don't recommend this product with larger aftermarket runners but if you must find a solution... I would try the V1 DIY kit and a side exit upper water neck option.
