water out the front of Kaase's Boss head not possible

Looks to me like in changing up the internal structure for strength and for his oil drainback idea, the ability to take water out the front of the head has been eliminated.

I'm going to take out a couple plugs and see if I can confirm more. When I do that I'll try to post here with photos, and contact JKRE directly, so the information can be shared.

This is for a Mercruiser 4 and it's kind of a blow to the coolant routing I had planned. Very very little room to take water out the front corner, as the distributor is right there.

I saw a Kaase Boss 9 motor this past weekend that had the front of each head drilled and tapped for AN fittings that have a pipe thread on one end.

said motor is mine and i can confirm Kaase Boss 9 heads are able to have the head drilled for water. I called Kaase and talked with him and Cliff about this exact issue back when i ordered my heads. They were great and had email me photos within 20 min showing me how they did theirs. Drill the head, mount the flat plate and tap it for a AN fitting.

here are the pictures Kaase provided to me




kind of hard to see but here is mine the the plates are not on or the AN fitting, but you can see where we drilled it.
