I'm in need of an 1850 thermostat housing part number UKC6916 (two large house outlets and one smaller outlet to overflow bottle)
Please :)

Did you get one? Ian up in Wick had a spare a while ago, but I think he offered it to someone...

Your memory is good Alun!
I did indeed have a spare thermostat housing but I have now sold it.



For my Sprint I am considering a TR7 housing because by converting to a header tank set up
I no longer have the need to fill up with coolant via the thermostat housing.
It's viability depends on how easy it is to incorporate a 135 elbow hose within the engine bay.
However I am some time away from trying this out. (Progress is slow, I am only managing about two hours each week on the car!)
Another option I am considering is a T2000 housing but I don't actually have one to try. It would involve fitting
a hosetail for the outlet to the header tank.

So, in other words, I may have a thermostat housing available at some point but just not right now.

How soon do you need one Justyn?



thanks,

Ian.

Its the small outlet pipe to the expansion bottle that's broken on both mine so may be able to repair one.

It looks like early TR7 to me,
but it is not the same as the one I have (which is from a late model).
The late TR7s had a header tank whereas the early ones had a Dolomite style "expansion tank".



Ian.

Cut it, drill it, tap it, fit a hose barb. :)

Bloody typical now that Ian has sorted me out.

that middle link housing looks a bit bodged and the pipe would hit the bonnet wouldn't it?
