Heater

Recommended Posts

With the cold weather approaching I need to get some heat into the heater matrix on my Mk 3 Cortina, the engine is a 12 valve 2.9 Cologne with throttle bodies and a Ric Wood inlet manifold that has no heater outlet, would it work to tap the hot water off from the rad top hose? the return would feed back into the bottom of the block, any thoughts?

The only problem with that is you would have to wait till the stat opens to get a good flow of hot water to the heater.

I would get some heat eventualy though! it would also be handy in the summer traffic ques, extra cooling from the heater.........

Have you contacted Ric Wood to see if there is anywhere on the manifold you could tap into ?
