What's this
#1
   

Not sure what this does. It was inline with the hoses that are bypassing the heater core. The two small vacuum lines go to the carb and a tree on the manifold. It doesn't look like the larger tubes which had the heater hose attached has any valves or anything on the inside.

Thanks in advance.

Cool I can make it work with that write up. Are there any after market ones cause the Ford guy at Kens didn't have a clue. Anyway an issue that may get put on the back burner. Check this out please.

   

That looks like the heater hose fitting on the block.... I guess. The one on the water pump is in better shape. If you replace the water pump can this be replace. Always something else. Ha I love. No I really do!

ooo looks like it snapped off the water housing...

that area will leak unless you plug it or replace the valve... the corrosion might be really bad and you may have to replace the water pump housing.

you can get them online.
i don't think don at ohio has them but you can ask.

otherwise mustangsunlimited.com carries it.

option if you just don't want to mess with it and the area isnt leaking coolant. is just leave the DVCV off and plug the distributor advance to the ported vacuum on the carburator.
if you get stuck in traffic and the temp goes all the way to the right( H) you could always switch the hose manually to full manifold vacuum. or turn the heat core on, or rev the motor in neutral, etc... its not critical to engine operation just automates engine overheating compensation.

Thanks. Looks maybe its soldered into the metal hose fittings?

Forum post below tells how to tap out the pressed in hose fitting on the block and replace.

Frankly if I'm going that far into it I'm probably gonna do the water pump while there.

Need this http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G09630/ for the fitting. A tap for the block with that thread too.

I would like to officially postpone the official attempted start date three weeks.

the bottom of the valve has a thermostate housing on it but it should thread into the housing. most likely it just snapped off midway on the thermosleeve piece and the bottom half with some thread is buried in there.
the pressed in piece would be the for one of the hoses going to the heatercore, the valve goes on the water pump houses next to the alternator and gets threaded.

when you get to it, if it looks really rusted out best just replace the housing and pump. you don't have to use the DVCV if you don't want to you can always cap the threaded hole for the valve in the water pump housing.
