Question 4.0 heater pipe

OK there are 2 hoses coming out of the heater, on a 4.0 (1997) one goes to the manifold at the front of the engine, the other stays next to the other then it connects to a pipe and drops down behind the alternator, then what does it connect to? Does it T into the lower Radiator hose? Does it ride off into the sunset on horseback?

Thanks!

I must be missing something I can't see where it connects to the water pump. Note I don't have a V-belt water pump, I have the newer serp belt water pump like in these pictures.

Hmm, so I need to T into it then, that should be fun finding something to do that.

Registry
I have two radiator hoses for the Tdi - both OEM (I got an extra to have a spare). One has the heater hose molded into the larger hose, the other has a couple plastic T sections and shorter lenghts of hose - so that suggest to me that there is no issue at all with using a hard T in your application. I would just suggest using a couple lengths of stainless tubing that your hoses will fit around, take about 4 inches of the fatter tube, and have someone weld about 1.5 inches of the shorter tube in the middle. Either put a bead around the ends, or just double clamp it.

Thats about what I was thinking, I was going to head over to Home Depot to see what I could rig up.
Thanks Peter and Jim!

Sorry about that--I have a 94/v-belt set up. It sounds like you are getting it solved.

Its cool Chris. I did a temp fix using PVC pipe so that I could try and start it, but I think the injectors are not firing so I have some wiring to trace out in the morning.
