    heat delete 71 fj40 w/75 2f

    I live in Fla and want to remove my entire heating system. I was wondering... Can I do away with the coolant hose on the top rear of the 2f. If so, how should this be plugged? Also, does ne1 makes a 1 piece lower radiator hose that connects the bottom of the block to the bottom of the radiator, instead of the 2 piece design? Thanks

    I did the same when I lived in FL. Found the appropriate sized brass plugs, one for the head, one for the metal tube. Did away with all the heater hoses. I doubt you'll find a rad hose that does away with the metal center portion, since the size of the rad side and the water pump side are different.
