A friend is building a 327" and needs a coolant distribution tube. Naturally, Kanter and Egge don't have them.

Any suggestions?

Hi Jack. I rebuilt my 288 about 10 years ago, and I cannot remember if I installed this coolant distributor tube.
There was nothing left of the original one. My engine can sit and idle all day and doesn't overheat. If I find I need one I will make one from brass or copper tube. It just has to fit the back of the water pump, and have a hole in the vicinity of each exhaust port. It can't be hard.
