    This is what I thought. But it hasn’t changed since ive had the car for 2 years and always ran lovely on temp abit too cool on some days. so not sure how it’s only messing it up now.

    Ye can do then. I haven’t a heater either, the plumbing hasn’t been changed since brought so not sure why it’s not working.

    There is only one pipe coming from bottom of stat housing which joins onto a pipe from bottom of rad and links up to top of housing where temp sensor is

    You can still pop out the thermostat from inside and leave the housing with outer seal etc.

    Yes after typing in google the Origonal is electronic but the one I brought from car spares is the same as one taken off no sensor on it or connection as I’ve seen on the ones online. identical housing to one taken off my car.... what will be problem with running with no thermostat for a while ? Need to get some miles on her, cant drive her hard anyway, and I’d wait till it gets hot enough eventually.

    Just tried again with filling engine before hand to see if made difference. And still temp rising above 90 and I have cold pipes below stat and below expansion tank runnin through to bottom of rad. Starting to think my water pump is shot.. nothing flowing through tank even when revving ??

    No nothing I don’t think. I can try and fill the engine first with water from the top with a hose pipe. Because the way it’s piped there must be loads of air in it.

    Yes tried without thermostat and seemed to do trick but how do I correct this with stat in ?
