Question about 1985 Ford Thunderbird
The fitting for the bypass hose that comes from the water pump and goes to the intake just under the thermostat housing, was rusty and corroded and had cracked badley. So I had to use an easyout tool to get it out just to find out that the fitting is not thredded, It is a press fitt...
What should I do?
Thank you for your help Devin gibbons

well its been a while sense i have done one of thies, but i believe you have to unbolt both motor mounts and jack engine up as far as you can to get the pan off. if you can't get the pan off after you got engine jacked up as far as you can, you will have to unbolt front pump and take them both out at one time. and samething when you put it back together.if anything the picup tube is what will give you trouble, thats why you have to unbolt the pump.

It is pressed in. I usually just take the nipple out and run a threader into the hole and place a piece of threaded copper pipe into the newly tapped hole. The factory uses a thin steel tube and they rust out if the cooling system is not properly maintained.

It sounds like you have an air pocket in your system. By the RH strut tower take the heater hose loose from the metal line and fill the cooling system when coolant starts coming out reconnect the hose. If that doesn't work jack the car up where the over flow tank is the highest point and fill the cooling system.
