Default 430 waterpump question

There is a hole that is tapped for a 3/8 male flare fitting on the bottom of the waterpump just below the heater hose outlet. Can someone tell me what its for and where it goes to. Thanks. Just about got it in the Bird

Question

I'll have to look at mine again when I get back home. I don't remember there being two ports on my original '60 T-Bird pump. Maybe yours is a core off a Lincoln 430cid?

Default Water Pump Help

I've checked 6 430 pumps and they all have the threaded hole for the heater hose fitting, and on the opposite side there is a threaded hole for the generator adjusting arm, no other openings except the two main water passages and the bypass fitting. Can you provide a photo?

Richard, I have nothing that says manage attachments. The only thing I can find is the insert image icon. The posting rules box says I cannot post attachments. Am I in the wrong window, or just looking in the wrong place?

Default Xolyman's WP pictures

These are from Claude:

"The photo is taken looking up from under the car. The red hose is the heater hose coming
off the left side. the tapped hole I am talking about is directly below that. It’s the one with
the flare nut.
Claude"

I checked the ports on the water pump on my 430 - they are like Carl said. The heater hose connection is on the left side, about 45 deg. toward the left side from the top. There is no port on the bottom of the pump other than the intake for the pump. The pix don't show the water pump intake - where is it? Also, I don't understand the piping going across the front of the engine - any idea what it is for? As I recall you took a 352 out and put the 430 in your car. Where did the 430 come from? Could it have been modified for some other use and now has a custom water pump? Are you sure it is a 430?
