Hemi newbie


I recently purchased i 1950 Ford f1 project with a 331 industrial sitting in it and have been looking at how i am going to plumb it in for the radiator. I am a chevy guy by all means and have no experience with the hemi and honestly i am considering pulling it out and dropping a sbc in its place and calling it good. It appears it has the wrong intake "just sitting on it" cause i have 2 1.5" dia hose connections coming out of the water pump one goes down the other up and from looking at pictures online it would go to a thermostat hosing on the intake. I have read these things online about using a remote thermostat housing but i dont understand with the setup i have how it would circulate water throughout the engine and not just the water pump.

the 51-4 car, all truck & some others have solid front heads. The motors like that have the thermostat housing/crossover in the intake. The '54 car engine is the only wet OEM 4 bl intake. You can find one of those, or get a wet 2 bl intake & use a 4 bl adaptor or...either drill a dry intake between the front ports & the next ports to hit a water supply & use a remote thermostat, or You can drill the front of the head & install an adaptor from T R waters or screw in pieces of pipe that hose for a remote thermostat would attach to. Some aftermarket intakes are drilled for the fittings also.

The W/P should have one goes to the bottom of radiator. Maybe wrong W/P. Top radiator hose would go to a thermostat housing in the intake where you have solid front heads. a '54 4 bl intake is what you need. Or get adaptors for front of heads (T R waters).

Also there is no ports on the heads front or rear to install a cross over tube.
