Default 96 block in 02gt... few questions

In the valley there is the coolant fitting, durectly behind the water pump. The 1 heater hose comes off of this. On the 02 its a press fit type of set up. And on the 96 its a soft hose with a clamp. I need to switch the one from the 02 block to the 96 block. Hoq do these come out? Are thet screwed in? Or press fit? And how can I go about switching them w out ****ing them up?

im pretty sure they are just pressed in. My 98 was a hardline I remember though and all I did was switch over the coolant pipe running to the back. Another thing that would need to be retained would be the front timing cover from the 02 block along with the belt tensioner. They were different when I put the 01 motor in my car.

You can take a hammer and tap the coolant nipple out of the 96 block. Take a socket that fits over the end of the nipple and put it on before you hit it with the hammer it helps even out the blows and makes pushing the nipple out alot easier. Go down to ford and get a new coolant nipple for an 02 block it presses right in, I had to do it when i swapped a pi intake on to my non pi heads.

Might be kind of ghetto, but the fitting was different on my teksid block so I just chopped off a portion of the metal pipe that went to it and ran coolant hose from the fitting to the pipe.

I am 98% certain you are correct. It comes out the front.

You pull off the water pump and knock the nipple out towards the front of the engine. Hit it from the valley side, put a socket over it first though it keeps it from getting mangled by the hammer and it evens out the blow.
