Coolant Outlet Tube

OK, so why can I not find ANY reference to a gasket for the coolant outlet tube?

It appears I may have a tiny leak and would like to have the parts on hand if it actually is leaking from there. I was just going to get a new tube, new bolts and the gasket. Short of actually walking into a Ford dealer, I am coming up empty.

It sounds like you are talking about the O-ring on the water pump spout that runs to the lower radiator hose. Mine weeps from that O-ring occasionally. The O-ring is available and I have seen the part # on this site. Is that the seal you speak of?

The tube is not part of the water pump. In fact, if you look in the service manual it tells you to "remove the 2 coolant tube bolts" prior to removing the water pump.

Now technically, you very well may be correct that there is an O-ring (has to be either O-ring or gasket), but this stupid steel tube is attached to the outlet of the water pump on one end (where the gasket goes), then to the engine side of the lower radiator hose. I see absolutely ZERO reason for this tube to exist in the first place. It does nothing except allow for another spot to leak or rust thru.

It is maybe 8-10" long and slightly curved. I have not even been able to find the tube itself listed on Fords site.

If you have a Clymer SD manual, there is actually a photo of it in the coolant/water pump section.

Yep, that's the one. There's an O-ring for it and you can buy it separately. I found the part # when looking through the water pump installation threads.

The new water Pump I bought from Northern Auto came with a new O ring for this location. You can probably just pull it and take it to Ford , or the hardware store and find a replacement. I tend to prefer Ford's O rings as they tend to be thicker and seal better, especially the one on the thermostat housing.

I think I will just stop at a Ford dealer and see if it is in their system. Don't want to pull it off and then try hunting it down.
