A little help - urgent

Hi All,

I've gone and busted the take off from my Zetec thermostat housing thingy, the one that, on my setup, goes to the expansion/header tank with a 10mm hose. It's the green bit, the rest of it is in the hose! It seems the plate has 3 bolts (two seen in the pic) so just the face plate might do...?

Could I even block this off?

I broke it whilst replacing the old original header tank with a new one and I also discovered I need some more hose. It needs to be 25(26)mm at the thick end then 15(16)mm at the thin end. I suspect it needs to be about a foot long min as I'm going to have to snake it round in an S shape to fit.

It's all a bit Heath Robinson but the old tank was about to blow and I'm wanting to get it set safe for Blyton next Friday - hence this is a bit urgent. So, please let me know what you've got. Happy to pay going rate and shipping. I'm resigned to missing this Sunday's local car show but I really don't want to miss Blyton.

Thanks...

Yep that would help thanks Geoffrey. I can get an internal coupler and a length of 16mm to finishh off. Just on a certain auction now having a browse...delivery times are going to be an issue though.

I have a stat housing or two in the garage mate. 

Might have given one to @chriss1455 with push in sensor. 

Have a new one with no sensor holes if you can get the sponsor moved.

I may have one of those plates but need to check in the morning as I'm not sure if I binned the housing last week

Oh hang on. If it's just the bit that bolts on to the stat housing then it might be irrelevant as to what sensor holes you need. Anyway mañana!

As a temp fix heat a piece of steel or copper tube and push into the housing. Let cool and will be OK for a while.

Andy the only one I can find is a brand new one and the bolt pattern is different!

you are welcome to have the whole housing but the temp sensor will need fettling or relocating.
