Wolseley 998 thermostat housing

Post  flat broke on Thu Feb 03, 2011 5:22 pm

In a "mini" crisis here. I have damaged the thermostat housing on my 66 Hornet. It has an integral temp sensor. Was this unique to these cars? None of the specialist appear to list such an animal. Does anyone have a spare?

Cheers, Tony

As far as I know the temp sensor is on the block. Any 998cc mini housing should fit (I take it you mean this part?) http://www.minispares.com/Product.aspx?ty=pb&pid=36161&title=

If so I should have one somewhere on a spare engine.

Thanks Zef but Hilbert is correct. The housing they sent me as a replacement is the one in your link. It is correct but no boss for the temp sensor Sad .

Cheers Hilbert, if you have a spare, that would be awesome.

Yes that is exactly what I need. If you would consider parting with it, I would be grateful. Just take your time removing it. I rushed it a bit. The studs had siezed in the casting. I did try heat and all the ususal tricks but it was late and I was tired and impatient. To be honest, I thought the part was common with all the early minis.


Let me know and I will get you the shipping details.

Thanks, Tony

I am stunned at how quickly you were "on the Job". Not to mention your generosity. I will PM you my address. In the mean time I will have to figure out a way to reciprocate. Certainly consider yourself welcome if you are ever visiting my neck of the woods.

Tony Cove, Ontario, Canada cheers
