    Posted: 18-February-2024 at 7:30AM
Pulling the water pump off the 460 Saturday as I was trying to break free the bypass hose from the water pump nipple the hose released from the pump nipple just before the manifold nipple began spinning in the intake manifold, so once I have the pump outta the way, I was able to also slide the nipple out of the manifold easily.Ouch



Is there a trick to resealing/reseating the nipple into the Edelbrock Performer 460 manifold so I won't have to worry about this issue again??

Thanks! Thumbs Up

If the njpple to intake manifold isn't too loose of a fit, I'd clean the manifold and the water bypass sleeve really good then re-install into manifold using Permatex sleeve retainer. I've used this sleeve retainer on 4x4 wheel bearing hubs when the races spun within the hubs. Hope this helps
