Hmm. It looks like the 2 lines are routed (from each manifold) to the front of the engine. Am I seeing something wrong?

The rear steam vent has a long tube that runs up to the front of the engine. The hose attaches there (near the front) and goes to the right side manifold. The other hose comes off the water pump thermostat housing and runs under the K&N to the left manifold.

You can see on Pram's pic earlier in the thread where he has the tube from the rear capped off with a black cap and a hose clamp.

1. click the search menu up top
2. click on advanced search
3. type lt-1 into keywords
4. select title only and hit search.

you need to have more than 3 letters in the keyword area for search so use a dash and type lt-1

I think you're suppose to remove the steam tube from the rear of the heads and install pipe plugs in each head. No need to have steam tube any more since you now have the fittings at the front of both heads.

Those steam tubes rust away and start leaking anyway, mine did.
