I can pick one up and mail it to you but I would think you could get one just about anywhere. Let me know.

NO. I just had a guy ride around town looking for one. That's a Banana Republic for you.

Shooter, thanks for the offer.

Jared, I'll pm you. Many thanks to all.

BTW, since I'm driving around without a Tstat; I'll be starting a thread asking about pros of cons on that particular subject.

Rafa - consider a "fail safe" tstat if you're replacing it. It'll fail open so it doesn't restrict the flow when it does fail. I know must of us watch our gauges, but if somebody else was driving the car it might save it from overheating. Just a thought.

What would you consider a "fail safe" tstat Rob?

BTW, I'm about to start a thread about the issues I'm facing in the General Miata section. Your input is always appreciated.

Does anyone have a 1.6 coolant housing lying around? I can't find the one I had and I can't move the hose until I change that housing.

Thanks,
