Thermostat Housing Importance
We offer thermostat housing suitable for both 2-wd and 4-wd. Some conversion kits suggest you use your original thermostat housing, and block off the coolant passage to the intake manifold, this is not the correct way to do it. You will see this and the following thermostat housing are direct replacements to your existing one, but with the ability to supply coolant to the intake manifold as it was designed.
Thermostat housing variants

There are essentially 2 styles of suitable thermostat housing and the only real difference in them is the angle of attachment of the top water hose.

The top picture is normally for 2-wd V8s, and has the outlet position vertical and pointing forewards,
and the 4-wd version angles the top hose to the right of the engine bay (lower picture).


Prices do not include local EU.Tax.(VAT).
Prices & stock are subject to change without notice. Information and advice, as always, is free.
