2N Ford water gallery

Postby Rusty red » Tue Jun 22, 2021 8:40 am

I removed the manifold on my 2n last night and the 3rd stud from the front came out instead of the nut coming off. When I took it out water came from the stud hole. Does anyone know if there is a water gallery there or do I have a problem?

It's my understanding that's normal, they open into the coolant passages. I read that you need to drain the coolant when replacing those studs.

Best of luck,
