Broken Water Bypass Tube Nipple 351C
#1
Hi all, I was trying to remove a broken bypass nibble out of my 351C block. I was using a chisel, trying to split the broken piece when suddenly it fell down into the opening.  I cant see it or feel it now and I'm confused where it went since the opening has a solid bottom.  So now I need to figure out with your help how to locate and remove the broken piece. Any advice will be much appreciated,  tha ks

Water pump or block side?

Sorry I might of called it the wrong thing. It's the nibble coming out of the block that the heater hose attaches to.[Image: 20190901-214320.jpg]

Ok just a heater hose hook up. Thought I was going crazy. 
You will probably have to be careful and grind down the side and get the old one out. I do not have a source for new one but sure somebody will.

I think he's talking about the heater hose connection.

You'll have to get a magnet on a flexible shaft and see if you can fish it out. You might be able to see it if you take the thermostat housing and thermostat off. There's a space to the side that goes into the same area as the heater hose nipple.

Mach-Me,
The tube you need is referred to by Ford as the water bypass tube. The original application for this tube goes back to 1958 when they were used as a bypass tube on the newly released FE engines. The name just stuck and Ford never changed it regardless of the engine application.
The Ford part#  is C5AZ-8555-A  (replaced by B)  and is 5/8" OD  x  2 1/2".  Depending on your parts source you may have to cut the tube length down since it is a multi-application part.  The Ford version is no longer available but since just about everyone has a NAPA store you can try them. Depending on the skill level of the keyboard warrior behind the counter, they can cross the Ford to a NAPA number or see if they stock a 660-1580. 
Good luck with your project.

Steve
