    Thermostat Housing ?

    I'm looking for a thermostat housing for a SBC - that points to the left AND is horizontal. Current one point upwards and with a new manifold moving the 'stat higher, I can see it causing an air pocket in the radiator feed pipe.

    Something like this looks good - but does anyone know a UK supplier

    any other suggestions?

    Cheers

    Real Steel have a few - http://www.realsteel.co.uk/section3b.pdf - it looks like the billet ones might work for you?

    Yeah I like the look of those - not so keen on the price though

    Steer clear of the cheap chrome ones. They corrode over time and leak. Didn’t pay anything like that for my billet ali one from Stateside Auto Parts.

    Topspeed Automotive also do them. They are about £30 though.
