coolant bypass plate
#1
quick question on the coolant bypass plate under the thermostat. Does it just drop in or does it have to be pressed in by a shop? thanks for any reply.

I am unable to remove mine, so I would venture to say it is "pressed" in.

However, I think it could be hammered/rubber malletted in like a freeze plug.

But if you have the part, and the block is at the shop, I imagine they will not have a problem installing it for you.

no. block is in the car and running. Still don't know if I have one in there. Will have to wait till spring to check. but I think that is why my engine over heats.

Its a tight drop in fit, if it is missing just tap it into place with an extension with the appropriate size socket on the end

When the engines cold just take the 2 bolts out and look. Minimal coolant loss and I would really want to know. Especially if your having overheating issues. Great place to start to look.
