Hose Connection Back Of ALternator

I am currently taking my motor apart to do guides. When I removed the timing cover with the alternator housing i discovered that the hose connection on the back had a hose cut off with a bolt in it. Total hack. Have looked all over the internet trying to find out what the routing is for the coolant hoses for that. Anyone have a diagram or can tell me what the schematic of hoses is? Thanks

I did, but if you notice it doesn't show anything about that connection on back of alternator. Was hoping someone that has this engine in their car would be able to help out.

Capex5,
Curious as to what you found out regarding this? I was working on my 4.6 today and noticed it has a fitting for a hose on the back of the alternator, but I don’t think the 4.4 it is replacing does?! RealOEM is no help either, as you said. It makes sense that the water comes in, and needs to get out.

Henn, I picked up another 4.6 since that post and and doing the guides on it and have the alternator cover off. Will take a pic and post it so you can see what the situation is. Stand by....

Thanks, I really appreciate it. RealOEM has some limitations for sure. I think Iíve pieced together that the back of the alternator hose goes to the transmission cooler?
