Had to replace the coolant elbows last night with some dorman 47065hp aluminum elbows. The original dorman ones were plastic and the one at the rear cracked around the oring. Of course it had to do all this when is -8 degrees out.
My question is this. Since the elbows are aluminum...they should be reusable. I have looked on the dorman site and was unable to find replacement orings. I will probably have to do a water pump in the future. I may email dorman Monday and see what they say.

Frank I installed the aluminum elbow's 3 yrs ago and have zero issues with them.
Cool, I had nothing but issues with the plastic ones...I still couldn't get them to not leak even when I put a thin layer of silicone in the cavities that they went into. It made it fun when I finally replaced them with the GM elbows.
