the 320 has a removable cover on the left side of the engine that distributes water flow. There is no such tube behind the water pump on that family of engine. Thanks, Lowell

Don't know how 39super8's, Jim, quote got attributed to Owen_Dyneto, Dave, but that's right of course, I've been looking at 110's & 120's lately that's my excuse. The cover plate on the left side of the Super8 engine has a sheetmetal "inner skin" with strategically placed holes to direct the cooled water to where it's needed most, exhaust valves I believe. Took me a while to find them but here are the pic's of Wade's '37 Super8 sideplate.
