THERMOSTAT BLANKING SLEEVE

$29.50 Inc GST
Part Number: 11G176

 

Removal of the thermostat helps to reduce engine temperature, however a thermostat blanking sleeve should be fitted to maintain correct coolant circulation to the entire head.

Failure to do so, will cause overheating around #3 and 4 combustion chambers, with obviously disastrous results.

When the blanking sleeve is used, it is also necessary to blank off the by-pass hose (not found on late heads) between the head and water pump.
