    When I do the linex application, I am going to remove the rear and front heaters. Do I need to have a continuous connection pipe on the heater hoses so that the hot water can keep flowing or can I just plug them while I drive it to the linex installer? I'm sure sandrat will have a good answer for me.

    slap a deep socket in between with 2 hose clamps, easy. I ran mine like this for like 2 years one time, :)

    So are you saying it needs to flow through? A socket kind of sounds like a plug?

    no, I don't think it needs to flow through, BUT that is the way it came from the factory so if I were you just joint it together with a piece of pipe or a socket. No, a socket is hollow? fluid will flow right through it, what I mean is a wrench socket, ie: 12mm ratchet socket.
