If it's a BBC the bypass in external with a short hose. When I first put mine together I didn't know what those ports were for and plugged them. The temp would go up and up until finally the t-stat opened. So I ran the heater hose in a loop. That worked until I learned about the bypass that I bypassed (did away with). Fixed that and everything worked smooth again.
