1 3/8" thermostat housing ?

1 3/8" thermostat housing ?

Postby webcat [OP] » September 16th 2009, 11:36pm

where do i get a 1 3/8" thermostat housing ? i looked all over online , summit , jegs etc.
The thermostat housing that was on my vortec is 1 /3/8" but the spout points off to the side , i cant have it point to the side or my radiator hose will hit my AC compressor!

Did you fix it yet? I had a problem with that hose when I put the V8 in. I happened to find a hose in my shop that goes up and over to radiator, that doesnt come to the front of the ac compressor. If you need the part number to that hose, I will have to look when I get home on wednesday and send it to you.

webcat let me see a pic of that hose and assembly. mine should plug right into the radiator with a shortening of the hose before the last bend. it will work like that and fit behind the ac comp as did on the truck but with the connection if there is a better way ill go that route
Don't explain it poorly 5 times. Take the 15 seconds to go out and take a picture of it!!

i could'nt get you multi point pics of the complete assembly just the intake but i can describe how it is !
The thermastat houseing neck points to the right and slightly to the rear about a .5" and the hose runs behind the AC compressor and then turns to go around the compressor and then goes up at a slight angle for about 6 " and then goes perfectly horizontal and straight into the radiator!

I was talking about a vortec engine and heads that i put a carb intake on and then put a adapter plate on so i could mount a throttle body from a TBI system!
