What is it.
 

Both water pumps are off my 59A and when I look in the cavity I can see what looks like an electrode hanging down in the block. What would I be seeing.

Anti-corrosion device?

How about a picture and we can all stop guessing?

wire from the casting of the block.

Looks like a wire electrode with a 90 degree bend at the end.

I don’t know how to do pics. Could be some kind of anode?

If its the size of rebar tie-wire, it could have been holding a sand core in place when they poured the cast iron.

You guys are fast. By the time I wrote my sentence four others chimes in. We definitely need a photo, I'm really curious to see this thing.

Judging by where it is, that was my guess (previous post).

As stated, nothing more than un-trimmed wire that was used to fasten/stabilize
the components during the casting process.
These are examples in an 8BA block.

Inside of the blocks are often full of this kind of stuff.

I've seen this before. It is as already stated.

That's a core wire. I found them when cleaning my block back in 1973.
Looks like a 1/8 welding rod with no flux.

That's what I learned to weld with My Dad said once you can weld with that the other would be easy.
