A question about the hot water line that goes through the intake manifold . should you use ,does it help anything other than faster warm up?

ABSOLUTELY. I had a heck of a time getting warm up and cool weather smooth until I added it. It also helps greatly to prevent the manifold from getting too hot and boiling your bowl. This is why almost all manifolds have this capability, including the TR-6 from the factory. It helps against cold wall dropout.

Now, many here will disagree. They are "experts". I can only tell you I chased my tail for weeks until I put on the water and ignored the experts. All those who claim it reduced HP have not done the math or think intuition is smarter than physics.

Add the water and follow Michael's setup guidelines. Put in a decent ignition and it can run like a production car. I would include an appropriate advance curve and vacuum control in the "decent ignition".

Stop fighting!

According to the dictionary the word duel is: a prearranged combat between two persons, fought with deadly weapons according to an accepted code of procedure, especially to settle a private quarrel.

You guys meant dual didn't ya?

That's my brother, getting in hot water again.hot smiley

I didn't like the looks of all the plumbing required to have hot water to the manifold all the time so I plumbed the heater return line through the intake and it seems to work just fine plus I don't have a separate heater return line to deal with. We do live in a desert area, Central Washington State, so definitely not a problem in the summer months as the temps usually exceed my tolerance for heat. smiling smiley

On a semi related subject, a lot of folks don't realize that back in the day of all cars having carbs that the idea behind the stock thermostatically controlled air cleaners was that they would suck some hot air from the "stove" located on an exhaust manifold so the air entering the carb would be at a balmy 135 degrees F to improve atomization of the fuel and help prevent cold wall drop out.

Did you read all the posts rob ,not interested in more performance .this dual point has been in this car for at least I5 years and it works fine so it stays.

I read you wanted drivability.
Good luck
