Hey Guys im about to make that vital cut. So we are talking right in the middle of that section between the 2 90 degree turns eh-

I mounted my filter already under the road armor bumper. Yea If you dont have aftermarket bumpers Im not sure where I would have put this. It would suck to put it way back on the frame rails.

I spliced into the degas bottle line really close to the radiator because I figured if i put the "Tee" fitting where that one picture had it that it might make Air Filter changes a pain.

Ok, I DO have that metal sleve in my heater hose. (this must be a update part they added on newer years (see my previous post on why ford does this)

I think I got enough room in there to get a copper pipe cutter in there & go around in a circle to cut the rubber evenly then pull the metal piece out. I would guess this metal piece is a reinforcement due to the 2 bends being so close together. This "Tee" fitting would do the same job as that piece I would guess.

Tomorrow i will butcher

Ok its all done & Im pleased with the good quality job I did. I didnt Butcher it.

I had more then enough hose to do the job, hell I have enough to almost do the job again. I only lost a couple tablespoons of coolant.

I also Primed my filter by filling it so i figure that is less i need to add later to the DEGAS bottle. also could help with any air pockets. I would recommend this.

Plenty of room to cut that hose with the insert. I just cut above the metal insert & had plenty of room to get that "tee" in there nice & tight. Full hose length & all with no crimps on the 90's

Ridintall: did you see the earlier post I made about why ford put that Metal piece in that hose? It looks like a update piece that comes on the newer models as well. I have the piece in hand & it retricts the flow down a bit

Yeah, that's what it looked like to me. I still have mine too. I gather they needed to slow down the coolant for better heat transfer from the oil cooler. I'm able to monitor EOT's now and so far so good since getting my oil cooler replaced (and coolant filter installed shortly after).

I would guess that If we felt like it You could insert a small tube inside the metal "tee" to reduce it back down to the size to this reducer piece. Once the smaller pipe is inside the "tee" you could just drill a hole to the smaller end that goes to the filter.

Im going to leave it alone myself.

I called Bob Riley (where we bought our kits from) & asked him what he knows about this restrictor piece that is only on Vans & he never heard of it before or has never been asked until I spoke of it.

I found this:

2004 Econoline Heater Core Leak:
Vans built between 1-20-04 and 5-29-04 with a front heater only may develop a leak at the heater core. Replace the core with part number 4C2Z-18476-AA as well as the inlet hose, P/N 5C2Z-18472-AA, which has an internal flow restrictor.
TSB 05-2-5.

I kept the restrictor so if this ever happens to me, I'll just shove it back in there.

That is Great to Know! Funny you posted about this again, I was just thinking This morning about that piece & having my doubts about it being removed. My thoughts are to have my machinist friend make me a "tee" fitting with a reducer of that same size built into the "Tee" . The only thing i was worried about is it being a problem with the EGR or Oil cooler but thats good to know its not that. Now Im less concerned knowing Heater core is the Worst case senerio.

If I can get him to make a 'Tee" fitting that is high quality & does the job would you be interested in one?

I suppose too fast of coolant flow to the heater core? That may help us in the northern States & Canada in the winter.

Killer Job on your Cooling System Filter Install.


Here is the best valve to block the heater core from getting hot water to maximize the A/C Coldness.




Another view




MOTORCRAFT Part # YG350 {#F87Z18495AA}
4 Port Valve
$16.03 $0.00 $16.03
FOUR SEASONS Part # 74809
4-Port Valve
$17.44 $0.00 $17.44

My Pal Dan at the Ford Trucks Forum made a nice set of instructions for installing this valve, so I made a pdf for him, it's a DL there now in the Faq's somewhere.

One Gent has 38 degrees from using this valve.

I am going to install one soon.

best,
Russ

It depends on the price. I may want to squirrel it away just in case. BTW, as I mentioned in previous posts, I keep an emergency repair kit in my van consisting of extra heater hose, clamps and barbed fittings should one of the stock hoses leak or blow from the T fitting.

I wonder how that valve would work with the coolant filter? I'd still want to be able to filter the coolant during the summer months. I guess if it got installed downstream from the T fitting it would work. Hmmmm.

Right now my air blows pretty cold, but it takes about 30-40 minutes of cruising on the highway before it gets really cold. Plus the rear A/C that Sporstmobile installs helps a lot.
