ID use of intake manifold opening

Recommended Posts

First thanks for info given concerning heater disconnect.

I have a 1980 Coventry manufactured TR7 convertible with federal specification.

After replacing the water pump I noticed a circular 1 inch opening in the intake manifold in the general area of the large o-ring

on the bottom side of the manifold under the thermostat.  If you look through the hole you can see the thermostat.  In a Haynes TR-7 owners workshop

manual it is shown on page 52, center bottom pic.  What goes in this opening? a core plug?

Also I can not find a drawing showing there the bottom radiator hose attaches to the motor.  If this is where it goes there is no flange to

secure it to.

Thanks for helping another 7 return to driving condition.

Hi the large horizontal slot opening is a tell tale for a leaking water pump. What you see is how it is,  odd though.

Laurence.
