I am replacing my water pump on 1990 E250/ 5.8 . I forgot which hose is heater and which is the bypass connection on pump? :runaround:

Normally the heater goes to the heater,the bypass is a short hose that goes to the front of the engine.

This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. https://www.autozone.com/images/clearpixel.gifhttps://www.autozone.com/images/clearpixel.gifhttps://www.autozone.com/images/lower_left.gifhttps://www.autozone.com/images/grey_line.gifhttps://www.autozone.com/images/lower_right.gif
