I want to clean up the engine bay and delete the coolant hoses that run through the passenger side of the carb base plate. Just want to know if anyone has done this or is the good idea fairy having a bad idea day. It comes from the water pump to the rear of the base plate, comes out of the front of the base plate then into the manifold at the front. Wanted to just go with a regular base plate but concerned about cooling being an issue with this and how to route the hoses after the delete. Oh yeah it is a 67 Galaxie with a 390 and factory 2 barrel. Pics in my garage. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
