That way the coolant won't try to back log up through the coolant port under the carb
    Got it, will drain coolant...

    Question: One of the carburetor coolant water hoses attaches at two places (?) one on the wax pellet hose nipple and curves around to attach at another hose nipple... OK, my question IS can I use a straight piece of coolant hose to replace this "C" shaped bugger or IS it a molded OEM curved piece..? TIA <-- thanks in advance for any replies...

    2nd (?) the 2nd hose on the 2nd hose nipple on the wax pellet (I think heads off into the cabin interior through the firewall, heater hose maybe?) my hose there has been cobbled together with plastic nipples & half a dozen hose clamps 'n three or more pieces of hose... It's not leaking (yet) but I think a forum member found a factory hose... Rock Auto has something that could be that hose; their picutre of it shows a bent up "S" shape of that sucker... Is that sucker another OEM available piece..?

    TIA for any replies, funny replies appreciated

    Use hose off the roll. The chances of you finding the OEM carb coolant recirculation lines are pretty slim (hose off the roll will be cheaper anyway...) I have used heater hoses from other cars to make it all work. I took the hoses I had into a parts store and compared them to what was jammed in their racks. One hose was definitely off a late 80's Nissan Pulsar - I had to cut it down but it fitted perfectly once I lopped off the superfluous end. I should've written down what the donor for the 'S' hose was. I probably did enter it on a post but it would take me centuries to find it
