Question about manifold water jacket. #1105633 07/26/20 03:50 PM

Need a Spot
I'm weighing some options for replacing the stock Raider carb (87, auto, 2.6l). I intend to keep the all of the coolant lines hooked up because I've read a few other posts about the 2.6 developing hot spots if one doesn't allow coolant to continue circulating through the intake manifold. My question is, does blocking off the coolant galleys that send circulating coolant through the carb impact overall circulation of coolant through the manifold? In other words, if I block them off, does coolant not get somewhere that it needs to be?
I realize that I'd get my answer if I just swapped in the K614 Weber kit but I'm exploring at going a different direction and using a Holley Sniper 2GC small bore EFI kit which means I'm going to have to fab up an adapter and I need to know if I have to account for the complexity of having to develop some kind of coolant bypass in my decision making. I've tried looking up if this question has been specifically addressed but, if it has, I'm not coming up with the right combination of search terms to find it.

Thanks

Was always a competition with a previous coworker for best work-related license plate.

My friend has "G ALA G"...I sounded this one out for Sacramento DMV and they accepted.

Now, that'a amazing! I'll remind myself to come up with a witty work-related license plate next time I buy a new ride.
