I just installed the new heater hose connector into my Weiand Street Warrior manifold. It's 1/2"NPT with a 5/8" hose connection. Problem is, I tightened it as far as I think I should but the outlet is pointing at the left front corner of the engine bay. I'd like it to be about 180deg (about another 1/2 turn) but I don't want to strip the threads or crack the manifold. If I back up a 1/2 turn it'll probably be too loose. Any thoughts? Thanks!
