Rapid Accelleration Open Loop Cooling Block Off
Received my Open Loop hardware from Dan.
High quality stuff here! Great craftsmanship. Polishes up nicely.
Also has a test-model in Clear or Black Lexan. Very light. Very trick.
Since this version was bare aluminum, I couldn't help myself and polished it up with some mothers aluminum polish.

so do you leave the water pump impeller still intact, or you remove it?

If you two ever get together, I bet the innovation industry would be worried That looks great!

looks nice all shiney.

I'd say you remove it...but this is all new to me. I'm not entirely sure what the access port on the reducer is for.
But it sure is shiny.

Open Loop Cooling Block Off
I think that it is for restricting the amount of water, whit same screw in it

yea at the moment it's not really making sense to me... you gotta tap the pump for a water supply line... you put this block-off plate on there...
what's the route of the loop? how are you getting water to both the oil cooler and the block? where is it pissing out?
the block-off plate is threaded, so i'm GUESSING a 1/2 NPT and water hose goes into there. the other piece goes on the head, clamps inside the stock 1" coolant hose?

you can leave the impelor on.
the routing Ive used on the last 2 project is
new fitting in the pump
threw ball valve
then strainer to
then to the oil cooler
oil cooler to blockoff plate
out head threw reducer
then out a standard 3/4 bilge fitting.
keep the factory lines for the exhaust.
the 1/8 npt in the reducer is for a autometer 60-210 temp gauge(optional) sensor.

Actually, now I'm more confused.
So you are making one big loop with single cooling, correct?
I'll have this seperated so that one loop is through the IC and one through the engine.
