    Ls6 coolant plugs and pipe ?

    I ordered the coolant plug and pipe kit from WS6store but it didnt come with the little gasket plates under the pipe. Do I reuse my old ones or do I need new ones, I called all the dealerships and no one has them in stock so not sure if I even need them. thanks

    They should be included, and already be attatched to the bottom. When I bought mine they had the o-ring gaskets already on there and ready to go.
    If they didn't come with the o-rings attatched and ready,,,then send em' back.

    I'm not sure if he is just not seeing the little 0-rings already on the pipes,,,or if someone actually did take them off before shipping.

    They should have been in original sealed GM plastic bags. Thats how GM sells them new and thats how all the venders get them as well.
    If they were not in the factory sealed bags then someone opened them up before they were shipped,,,,,in which case it's possible someone pulled the 0-rings off.

    That sounds correct as is. Bolt them on and you should be ready to go.

    the original design had the o-ring gaskets in a plate. the current design has the o-rings in the coolant line ends.
