Default Kaiser's Thermostat

Hi everybody

I am just about to have a 'Kaiser's' metal bodied thermostat fitted to my 2 ltr V6 petrol. Is it a very big job to have it fitted by my local garage ?

At the same time I am having the engine breather hose pipes being changed with complete kit supplied by Rimmers.. Again is that a big job ?

The original thermostat was leaking slightly, and the garage also mentioned the 'T' piece was leaking. I not sure which 'T' piece they were referring to. Would it be the same 'T' piece that Rimmers have supplied with the engine breather hose kit?

I'm a bit out my depth here so can any one help.


Thankyou

trimani (Alf)

Hi Alf.
The T piece would be the top breather pipe it is just unplug and push part easy to fit, check out my link below and you will get a drift of what is what, but I should imagine the garage will take off the manifold etc when they do yours.

The breather pipes live under here, a 10 min job to replace.


The thermostat is here...


...and the garage will most likely remove the inlet manifolds etc to reveal the engine V, which is where the thermostat is located.

Biggy Thanks every one for the piccies and advice. I did consider trying it myself, but with your submissions have decided that's a no-no, so the garage gets the job ( With appropriate comments from you to him via me ). I will be very diplomatic

Now that is interesting - I thought that the housing was metal, but that the plastic pipes were still used. It looks good.
