Blocking Heater hose fitting on 24V V6

Post by Smity42 »

Hi Guys,

I want to know if I can replace this fitting with a bung on a 24V V6:

It is the heating for the heater hose. I won't have a heater box, so I need to either bung up that hole, or run a hose from there to the bottom radiator hose. I would rather bung it up as it is neater and simpler, but I don't want to do it if it will prevent the cooling system from working properly (i.e. stop anything cooled by that gallery getting coolant flow past it).

What do you reckon?

Next question, does anyone happen to know what thread that fitting is?

From measuring I get possibly M24x1.5?
