I have a really crazy story and I know I should write it on a piece of paper and swallow it, but here goes, this technician I know, who has raced Fords and Mopars with moderate success tells me that I should plug up the little water hose that runs between my water pump and the front of the intake manifold and reroute the coolant using a long rubber hose to the back of one of the heads, drilling appropriate holes and using good hardware etc. He says the whole darn thing will work better ( on a 454 truck engine in a street Beaumont ). Is this an old back yard racers trick that I don't understand, or is he way off track? Thanks...I know I should have swallowed it, please be kind, it's a true story....R. B.

Gentlemen, thank you for your responses, and mainly for believing me...I know it sounds nutz, your answers made a lot of sense as my friend Ken is a circle track racer, I doubt if I will actually do this procedure, as it doesn't seem worth the time and trouble...probably a flush, a better fan shroud or an electric fan would do the job very well with less time and money, however, it makes some sense to me now...hope nobody who took the time is ticked off if this remains in the theoretical realm rather that being turned into the real thing...maybe somebody else will want to try it. Thanks again...R.B. in Ont.
