    Cap off if not using the heater or a U shaped hose?

    Do I need to circulate the water through from point to point or can I cap off both feed and return hose nipples?

          It's fun to play windshield wiper going from from point to point and keep in mind that it's always best to feed off the nipples. But if your hose is U-shaped, man-o-man, you've got problems.

                Until I can pull and replace my heater core (hopefully before it gets cold) I just used some heater hose to create a closed loop. Nothing fancy or pre-bent.

                  Yep that's what I going to do, want to find some stainless steel ones so they last longer. our winters are 65° smh a hoodie works if my pussy gets sore and I turn into a baby and feel cold fuck it. my rebuilt A/C heater box just pumps heat full time so fuck that hoses came off now its 112° this weekend pissing me off.
