Busted thermostat Now what ?

The casing of my thermostat broke while trying to remove the oil lines during a header install job. What are my f___ing options now ? What is the cost of a new OEM? Are there good aftermarket options ?

Unhappy

I need the external thermostat which is mounted in the right rear wheel well. Where is a good source for this part ?

Uhh, Porsche breakers for a used one or our host for a new factory replacement?

You could ask Tom, he is a member here. He had what I needed.

Buy a new one. You'd be taking chances with a used one.

The Mocal really wouldn't work because of the -12 fittings and the way the fittings are set up. If you were doing an aftermarket setup, it would work.

I just received another kick to the nards while trying to pull the lines off which go to the cooler. They twisted and kinked even with a second wrench on it for . Added expense here we go. Does anyone here have experience using alternative oil lines as opposed to the factory 'hard' lines. I am thinking of going with a stainless braid. Are they pricey ?

They won't dissipate heat like the stock lines do, which isn't good.

They must be a lot cheaper than the factory parts though.

They can get pricey. Go with -16 and price it out. Maybe you can find some new ones or even repair your old ones. Didn't someone weld in a copper section to fix theirs?

As suggested, the stock lines make good heat sinks, so if you go with stainless steel, make sure your oil coolers are good or add another.

Nathan you are correct on the disipation. But I think it wouldn't matter with the rocker cover. I made new ones using 4130 but DOM mild steel would be easier. You could go to any hydralic supply shop and they can make you what you need and would be far cheaper than braided lines and anodized hose ends. plus they would be far more durable.

Also I use the Mocal thermostat with -16 ends it works very well and have never had a problem with it 5-6 years now. Try www.batinc.net they are pretty reliable and have good service.

Do the braided stainless hoses not work well for heat dissipation ? I purchased the B & B Headers and in the kit comes flexible stainless pipes which look great .

You would not be able to tell the 5 degree difference between the two. Thousands or race cars use braided lines for 20+ years with zero heat issues. The oil cooler is designed for heat disipation not the oil lines. Even those extruded aluminum oil lines that connect from the oil tank to the engine won't net you any readable results. Don't lose any sleep over oil line heat disipation! Be more worried about the volume of oil flow. -16 is the smallest I would even consider for a Porsche aircooled oil line.
