Seriously why don't you buy a laser printer, make a casting of these parts in plastic, contact a chinese supplier and reproduce them in large quantities. Seriously I just gave you an insight as to how is done and you can make great profit on these beautiful pieces.

You have great product in your hands.

Thats what I've been saying! I already have a couple factories I've been looking at for some of my company's parts that would fit perfect.

What is the width and depth of the groove machined into the spacer for the thermostat?

EDIT: Nevermind, didn't search hard enough

Sorry guys. The latest excuse I'm getting is that two out of three machining centers are down for repairs!

Spacers...done!

Don't worry about the AN6 ORB fitting in the M12x1.5 sensor port. I have been assured they didn't try to thread it in.

Great Work man,. You have to groove the spacer in order for the T-stat to sit as flat as possible. For reference look at the rear of any miata cylinder head.

I missed that they hadn't machined the grooves yet. Ah well, not as done as I thought.

Looking good! I am not using a T-Stat, so they can leave the groove out if possible!

So, I pick up the parts and when I go to test fit everything, I find this...





They forgot to tap the AN16 ORB port on the water pump inlets! It'll now take another day for them to finish.

Anyhow, the rest of the parts look great and fit perfectly.
