Coolant Distribution Manifold
Coolant is distributed to the cylinders via an external coolant
manifold. Our coolant manifold is the essence of both simplicity
and reliability, incorporating a modular design utilizing a minimum
number of components for both the inlet and outlet sections of
the manifold. The modular design allows the same parts to be used
to create a coolant manifold for 4, 6 and even 8 cylinder engines.
The coolant manifold is comprised of 'T' fittings, intra-cylinder
transfer tubes and AN fittings. The coolant manifold is designed
to accommodate inter-cylinder movement that results from both
thermal expansion and engine case flex without leakage occurring
and also without incurring any repetitive stresses in the components
that could result in fatigue failure.
Conventional AN fittings are used to connect flexible hoses between
the Coolant Manifold and either the Coolant Pump or the Thermostat
housing. Additional flexible hoses are utilized as required to
connect the Thermostat housing and the Coolant Pump to the heat
exchanger (radiator). Hoses are TSO-C53A certified Aeroquip or
Each of the fluid fittings is machined from billet, 6160 T6
hardened alloy and are annodized in a variety of colors (clear,
black or blue) to provide an anticorrosive finish.
