Hey guys!
So I am doing a much needed recoring of my radiator plus replacement of hoses etc.
I did this because my radiator fans were squealing like crazy (any upgrade recommendations?) :lol:

While doing this I noticed that my thermostat housing was completely knackered (see pic)

Im in desperate need of either a replacement, or a retrofit from an alternative car model?
Does anyone know of one in South Africa (preferably Johannesburg) or one that came from a corolla or some such common car that'd fit?
Any help is really appreciated!!

Hey!
Thanks for the super quick reply :lol:
Its my last resort, id like to know that its been done right and I can forget about it, and that whole piece is pretty pitted inside too, so id prefer a replacement.
If theres no alternative then thats what ill do. But its not ideal.
Ive tried finding replacement thermostat housings from other cars but there really is no info on them online. :cry:

I just checked and you can buy pretty cheap from Centerline USA.I'm sure they can deal with international shipping customs etc.

Hi guys!
Thanks for all the assistance but Kevin from AK classics managed to sort one out.
Im sure all you s.a guys know him but if not, he's definitely my go to guy.
I was looking at centreline alfa for it but I needed it ASAP so it wasn't viable.
