George & respondees:
Best of luck locating genuine replacements - the word is that the supplier of such things has bellied up and the T4 thermostats are NLA. Buy 'em up if you can find 'em - my favorite VW/Porsche FLAPS guy had one last one on his shelf, and HIS supplier wanted around $50 for the last one in the warehouse...
Just on GP, I had stockpiled a quite a few (over the years) in my travelling parts box, which due to an unfortunate turn of events, was stolen out of my Westy down in Mexico - moment of silence, please.
On the bright side, I hear told that Type 1 FI-motor thermostats can be used if you twist/unthread the extension rod (?) piece and thread your cable into it. I haven't had the nerve to try it out yet, but may have to when the last of my T4 stock runs out...
