heater hose routing

I recently purchased a 1981 cj-7 with the inline 6 that the previous owner had bypassed the heater core as it was leaking. I was able to install the new heater core but have been unable to find a description or picture of the routing of the heater hoses. Thanks for any help

Three hoses total. Top of heater core out to back left of intake manifold. Front of intake manifold over to the thermostat housing. Water pump over to the lower heater core.

Pictures may help even better.....without the rest of the Jeep to be in the way of the view

I know, old thread,...but:

I just got done hooking up the hoses as described after installing a new heater core. Before attempting to run the engine form the first time since taking it all apart, is there anything special I need to do? I thought I read somewhere that I needed to burp/bleed the coolant system before running.

Thanks all....
