    Duratec overheating.

    Hmm not sure how that works i thought the bypass was there to open up the thermostat once hot? Otherwise the thermostat will only open through conduction of the none circulating coolant. This will means it will be slow to open and a very hot engine!

    Just realised I can’t see a thing with the phone. Basically lower pipe on waterhousing should go to the inlet on thermostat facing most backwards and header tank should go to the middle most port pointing 90degs to the thermostat.

    Scott sorry for slow response. I don’t have a heater on mine but I could send you a video of the plumbing if you need a little more help?

    Do you have a bypass pipe between bottom of water housing and thermostat?
