Olds 455 electric water pump

I have an electric water pump for my Olds 455 and I don't know what to do with the hoses that the mechanical pump used. The electric pump just pumps from one side to the other, where does the lower radiator hose and the intake hose go??? Help!

It doesn't just pump from side to side. There should be an inlet someplace on the pump that hooks up to the lower radiator hose. The electric pump will not have the heater hose connection nor will it have the bypass hose connection that goes to the thermostat housing.

yea, you've gotta have a neck for the water intake. You don't pump water from one side to the other. As far as the other hoses, well, you can bypass or cap off or plug your heater hose and necks. As far as the thermostat bypass, you can cap that off too, but I recommend that you drill a couple small holes in your t-stat just in case.
