What's in the Box

Info

How handy is this! The built-in calibrated thermometer on this chrome-plated 16 lb. radiator cap makes it easy to check your coolant temp - and to know when its safe to remove the cap. Fits radiators on most domestic vehicles.

  • Helps to prevent burn injuries
  • Integrated coolant reclamation valve works great with your coolant recovery system
  • Your radiator can reclaim coolant from your overflow bottle
  • Wide 30° to 270° F temperature range
  • Calibrated in centigrade and Fahrenheit
  • Color-coded temperature ranges
  • Chromed crown with a colored trim ring

Learn more about cooling systems, how to choose the proper pressure cap, and how they work by reading our tech article. Cooling System Principles

Notes

  1. Check the Thermo Cap temperature indicator to determine if the coolant is cool enough to make removing Thermo Cap safe. If the coolant is very hot, then thoroughly rinse the radiator with cool water, until the coolant temperature drops into a cooler safe zone.

I believe that this cap will fit most-all radiators, but Speedway Motors techs. could assure you of this. I've relied on them several times- they know their "stuff".

The thermo cap will fit most domestic style radiators including the Afco radiators. This will not worl with the screw on style or small cap(1" diameter) radiators.

This handy ThermoCap fits most standard domestic vehicles having a radiator neck with the two notches on the outside of the neck for lock on. It will not fit the earlier vehicles having a neck with the notches on the inside similar to a fuel cap or the early Fords with the threaded necks.

Will this fit on a 1957 Chevy radiator? I notice you have another cap also with a readout which one will fit? The top of the radiator is all brass. I currently have a chrome Chevy cap on the radiator.

This ThermoCap will work on your '57 Chevy radiator. This Mr Gasket cap has a ThermoCap logo and our 91015616 has a Speedway logo on the face. Other than the logo they are very similar units.
