Re: Something is missing

Hi, well I seem to running into a little problem. I have a Victor Jr manifold and am trying to use the Stewart/EMP thermostat. As expected there is a recess in the thermostat housing that the thermostat must sit in. The problem is that the thermostat mounting surface has a raised area on the back side and when inserted into manifold, it has to be perfect or it will not seat correctly. Since the thermostat needs to go into the housing first and then have the gasket placed on top, there is really no way to be sure it has been placed in the manifold correctly. Hence the dang thing does not seal well and once it starts to come up to temp, drips coolant around the housing. I'm going to look at some other thermostats and see if I can find one that fits into the manifold with some room to spare so I have some room to play with. Small but frustrating problem.

I did warm it up good last night

Sorry Larry, for some reason some are missing the Flash plug-in that YouTube uses. Try this.

Mike, if I understand you correctly, couldn't you use a gasket adhesive vs a sealant to bond the gasket/thermostat as an assembly to the manifold base, then offer up the thermostat housing?

Sounding good but the WOT will be better! They sound totally different from inside the car vs outside.

Re: Something is missing

Yes, was going to try that approach tonight. I'm going to take a close look tonight and compare a standard thermostat and how it fits as compared to the Stewart.
