    Default picture of 345

    anybody got a picture of a 345? I am assembling mine after rebuild. The water tubes coming from the heads to the water pump, there's a clamp on the head to hold them in but what holds them in the water pump?

    The water pump housing ends have o-rings in them. The tubes are held in place with the bolt that holds the end that goes in to the head. There is enough of a seal that this is fine. No bolt is needed on the housing side.

    I was JUST disassembling a 345 last night, it seems that what holds the 2 water pipes in is just a little circular washer type gasket. I was wondering as well but apparently being attached to the head keeps it in well and doesn't leak.

    i got it. I really wish I had taken pictures as I was disassembling the motor. Got the manuals but sometimes the pictures are a little blurry. I wondered if that was all that held them in. I'm thinking that new o rings came with the gasket kit.
