The previous owner of my rig removed the bypass hose from the thermostat to the water pump. I’ve got plugs on the thermostat and water pump where the hose would normally go. Saw it when I bought it so have been very cautious on engine temp. Everything runs great no overheating but the hoses are in need of replacement. Should I put the bypass hose back in or leave it as is? Anyone else bypassing the bypass?
