HELP! I have a 1973? Ford Industrial engine out of a forklift and cannot figure out the proper routing for the cooling hoses. There are four 5/8" ports off the water pump, three 5/8" ports off the thermostat housing, one 5/8" port off the intake manifold, plus the upper radiator hose off the thermostat housing and the lower radiator hose off the water pump. I have tried Ford engine centers, the OEM of the fofklift, Old-Timers and anyone else I thought might know. Any ideas?. THANKS!

Is this off an LP powered forklift? LP vaporizers require hot water off of the engine.

Yes, it has an LP fuel regulator and liquid cooled air compressor pump for the air brakes.

Welcome to CD forum BTW.

What are you trying to do with this engine, if you don't mind me asking? Are you going to stay with LP fuel or go to gas, or something else?

I'm leaving it set up for LP. I just had the engine remaned and it runs great on LP. However it was in pieces when I got it so I don't have the proper hose routing and it's running too hot (poor circulation).
