PostSubject: Single 4 barrel thermostat housing   Tue Dec 09, 2014 12:52 am

My car has not ran more than a minute or so at a time in years now. I had an offy dual quad on it and my dumb ass didn't put enough anti freeze in it and somehow (south texas) it froze and cracked my intake. So, After months and months I found a single 4 intake that I put on it but I never could find a thermostat housing for it. Are the 4 barrel thermostat housings specific to 4 barrels or will the tri powers or 2 barrels fit? I'm trying really hard (I know I know I say this every year) to get this car back on the road. Needs a lot of odds and ends under the hood since I ditched the dual quads and went to a single

Sorry to hear about your problems! The thermostat housings will fit from both 2-barrel and 4-barrel intakes from 58-60. The Three-Power thermostat housing will not fit.
Good Luck, Peter

Robert.....all 1958 to 1960 2bbl and 4bbl thermostat housings are the same. Part #529219. Tri-Power outlets will not fit. Some later year 2bbl and 4bbl outlets may fit, but the orientation toward the radiator inlet (toward the driver side) may or may not be the same. You would need to check that out. I have also seen housings (usually chrome plated) sold in speed shops and auto parts stores that may fit, but again you must compare their size and orientation. Most thermostats are about the same diameter so that part shouldn't be a problem......John

Thanks guys, I know I have a few 2 barrels laying around here. Hopefully I can find the thermostat housings for them.
