Help with my 351C

Hi all... The nibble that attaches the heater hose to the block has rusted out and broke off with hose. Where do I buy and how do I attach a new one? See pics. It's a 72 Mach1 351C. Thanks in advance

Any good parts store (NAPA etc) should have those. You can reference Pioneer WPT-1052 of C5AA-8555-A or -B

Summit has them in stock as well.

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain

Thanks for the info. What is the best way to get the old one out? It seems to be press in.

Many times you can pry the remains away from the wall with a tiny screwdriver. Sometimes you can slice them with a cold chisel.
Other times, a tight-fitting drill bit, turned in my hand with a tap handle, then pulled out with a slide hammer or Vise-Grips and small hammer.
When all else fails, the "right" sized drill bit, liberally coated in Vaseline to catch the "chips".

Thankyou very much.... I'll give it a shot this weekend.

Once you get the hole properly cleaned out you have 2 choices.

1. Tap the hole the appropriate NPT and install a threaded nipple.

2. Put the brass nipple in the freezer overnight, line the hole with a very light coating of Aviation Form-A-Gasket and tap the nipple in cold.

Hint: Make sure you mark the nipple with a Sharpie at the desired depth so you know when it's in far enough.
