Just installed a new edelbrock intake and carb among other things on my 65' 390. Got everything looking good, carb linkage and kickdown all set up, new distributor and coil, plug wires, etc. BUT, I realized (a little too late) that I forgot about the the piece of hose between the bypass fitting in the front of the intake and the matching fitting coming off the water pump. I can't figure out anyway in the world to get a piece of hose on correctly without either removing the water pump or taking the intake off which I really, reallly don't want to do. I am about ready to slice a short piece of hose length ways and see if I can overlap it and get it tight enough with hose clamps not to leak but I am doubtful about this idea. Coming from a small block chevy background, I can't believe how much work these FE engines are for something as simple as removing an intake manifold. Your Ford guys are hardcore. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
