Need part name/number help

What is the part name/part # of the "pipe" with the red arrow point at it in my attached images? It goes to the coolant reservoir and then runs under the intake. Mine is rusted through and leaking coolant it seems. Also, I assume I'll just need the upper plenum gaskets to replace it [other than the part itselft]?

Yep, that's definitely the thingy pipe. Go to the parts store, they'll have the diagram they can show you on computer.

I started at the parts store, they couldn't pull it up; that's why I was needing a name.

and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who refers to a part as a thingy. (I buy bus parts. My vendors are used to me calling for something like "the silver thinger that attaches to the EGR valve." Then I have someone show me where it is on the bus so I can take a pic and send to the vendor. My parts manuals are notoriously vague and have poor diagrams. )

What greater freedom than not knowing where you're going or why ?

I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.

If you know where you're going, it's travel. If you don't, it's an adventure.

All I need is coffee and mascara.

OK. I had guessed that it's a Gen 3 with a Vulcan from the aluminum intake. If it helps, it may not have a part number if it's supplied with the thing it's screwed into (I know, it doesn't help). JYs may not want to sell it without the whole engine, and I'll bet it's a discontinued part. I suggest taking it off (means draining the radiator) and having a piece of steel or copper tubing brazed on to the threaded plug to make a new connector. I wouldn't try Waterweld or any of the other epoxies here due to the high temperature and chemical activeness of the coolant. I would suggest replacing it with a blind plug, except that I can't think of anywhere else to route the hose to the tank from the high side of the coolant system.

I would just cut it off right past the damaged part and go to the junkyard and cut off the amount of metal elbow that you need. Take a few inches of the same rubber hose and slip it over the cut piece on your engine the new piece and put two small hose clamps on it.

The part that was bad was under the intake, so I need more than the elbow; the piece has rotted/rusted from the inside out, so when I epoxied the previous fix on the visible part it simply forced the pressure to leak out of the weak spot under the intake.

Anyway, attached is a picture of the part sitting on my desk, as well as a link to the part [in case anyone else runs into this same issue].
