New 'as original' MkII and MkIII thermostat housing with threaded temperature take off, can be used on earlier DB2 & 2/4 models - Note: the temp gauge capillary / take off is best fitted on the engine before the thermostat as AML realised with the MkII, see below.
This pattern was drawn out from new original thermostat housing, it takes original brass thermostat without modification and takes our new thermostat adaptor (replaces No Longer Available brass thermostat & uses Jaguar stat)
This new casting comes with the 6 studs required. Polished as original, can be supplied in 'as cast' for Race / Rally cars - shown in photos with 'pigs snout'
On earlier DB2 & 2/4's - Its too late if the radiator is reading over 100°c, this may result in a cracked head at worst or a head gasket !
The brass adaptor to fit the Temperature gauge bulb is sold as a seperate item.
The 'Connection, Thermostat housing' or 'pigs snout' is sold as a seperate item,
Thermostat housing & bypass gaskets also available
