has a Perkins
4.236, and came with a long loop of coolant
hoses that i assume used to be connected to a water heater
. i'd like to remove these, as i do not plan on having a water heater
connected like that, and one of the hoses has sprung a leak.
question: when i remove the coolant
hoses that went to the water heater, do i need to install a new (much shorter) loop of hose in their place, or do i just plug
the two holes? is there anything else i need to do?
Other engines i've seen appear to just have plugs in those holes, but i'm confused about how that would not interrupt the flow of coolant through the engine
