Question identify this van engine component

hi i received a used van engine yesterday and noticed a few changes from the F series models. For the most part, its just brackets, a manifold and valve covers that need to be swapped over except for one item. On the passenger side, it actually looks like it is a hose/fitting connected to the lower corner of the head in the front...just behind the alternator bracket. what is that ?

hi that is in its usual place. this looks much larger and has a rubber hose..maybe 5/8ths connected to it and is routed topside. the truck just has a plug in its place.

hi this is a large fitting...reminds me of lines that were used on gas engine air pumps to push more air into the exhaust stream for the cat converter...back in the day. apparently not used on the f series as it is plugged.

yours may have been plugged from OP since they didnt want to change out a bad heatercore.

What your describing is exactly where i'm tapped into, to feed coolant (for heat purposes) to my wvo system.
