Default No water from exhaust tips


I have a twin BBC 502. I removed the stock castiron exhaust manifolds. And fitted the stainless marine manifold with stainless risers. My thermostathousing is a standard 6 housing connection. How can i mount the cooling hoses from the thermostat to my new exhaust. Can samebody help me with that maybe i have to plug a hole in the thermostathousing?

So you have 2 water outlets per exhaust and only 1 water inlet on each exhaust? For the time being you can get 2 pipe tees and 6 nipples. 1/2 or 3/4 pipe. Whichever fits the exhaust water hose.tee the 2 outlets for each side together and run them into the 1 inlet on the exhaust. Looks butchered, but it will work. You can't plug off either of the water outlets. NOW, order the correct thermostat housing with only 4 hoses total-only 2 outlets.
