300Tdi thermostat outlet reverse direction
I have made up this convoluted hose from silicone and aluminum tube that goes from the upper water neck to the (200tdi) radiator bottom inlet (on the right). It's really long and weird so I was thinking that if I could somehow turn the upper water neck so that it goes to the right rather than the left that it would make the long hose run shorter and less prone to damage. it will be cleaner under the hood.
I guess I have two ways I could do this. Cut the water neck at the middle of the 180 bend and reweld it clocked back the other way. Make a new neck from flat plate and tube.
A third option is to try fitting something from a different engine, but I have no idea what.
Open to creative and very cheap options that anyone may think of.
