Asked by Jan 27, 2019 at 04:11 PM about the 1961 AMC Rambler Classic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1961 Rambler classic V8 with AC
4.1, 250
I replaced all the heater system parts but my
research into how the water hoses hook up is
not clear
Six connection points. Two from the engine,
two at the heater valve, and two at the heater
core. Flow direction from engine??

One hose would go from the engine to the heater control valve and then to the heater core. The other one would be the return line. Is there a heater hose connection at the water pump? You may have to experiment to get the flow direction correct.

Thanks The flow direction is the question from which hose Thanks again
