Needs better gasket

November 03, 2016
Suggest O'Reilly gasket #35067 @ $1.99; has sticky-back that holds thermostat firmly in the groove on the outlet - makes installation much easier. MUCH better looking than the old cast iron outlets.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great fit, identical to Offy's but for less money.

March 14, 2016
I'm an experienced mechanic who is very familiar with aluminum parts and castings, so I had not problem with this housing and it worked great. BUT, being as how this is something extremely simple to install, for most any flathead owner who owns a wrench, maybe some instructions with a torque spec and a few pointers would be nice. Clutches are hard to replace and rarely replaced by a layman, however any layman might attempt these t-stat housings and would probably benefit from a short set of instructions and specs.
Pros:
  • Great Finish
  • Low Cost
  • Good Fit
Cons:
  • No Instructions
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nice fit and look

Nice fit with thermostats and my Navarro head. Included gaskets and bolts also included. Bolts match the style I am using with other parts, so was a plus.
Pros:
  • Full Install Kit
  • Clean Look
Yes, I recommend this product.

The product is as good as OEM

October 17, 2014
the part was well made and finished. Installation was a bit of a struggle due to the small size of the new thermostats purchased with the goosenecks. It took a couple of tries to get the thermostat properly centered and not under the gasket. Likely this is a thermostat size issue not the gooseneck.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Excellent Look and Function

April 28, 2014
Great cheaper and better looking alternative than the cast steel housings. Used supplied gaskets and hardware with no leaks. Recess to hold thermostats is perfect and makes mounting easy without worry of thermostat being out of place.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm installing a 51 RT flathead in a 40 ford. What are the inlet and outlet sizes on the radiator? My guess is 1-1/4 on the top and 1-3/4 on bottom outlets. Help if you can.

speedway offers a hose to use your 40 radiator with a late motor

These water necks are for the 1949-53 Ford flathead engines and accept a 1 ¼” hose. A lot of the radiators are a larger size and require an adapter or sleeve in the hose that goes onto the water neck. Another option would be an adapter hose that goes from 1 ½ to 1 ¼”. From checking various sources it appears depending on the manufacturer that the upper necks on the radiators are normally 1 ½ or 1 ¾” diameter.

Sorry, but these necks are only for the end mount thermostat housings on the 49-53 and will not work on the center port earlier 38-48 heads
