I have a custom radiator setup in my Xb at the moment, and the hose on the top of the rad is on the other side to usual. I need to point the hose the other diection

I cant seem to find a swivel thermostat housing on the internet to buy!

Does anyone know where i can buy one?

or if i could adapt a generic SBC one?

I figured i could make something like that fit but not sure if the themostat will open correctly ect

How about using a straight neck ( I.e. straight up ) and trying a VL commodore bottom hose. I had to do that in an XD with a similar problem

Canton racing products 80-057

Been using this one for about a year with no problems. Only thing about it I don't like is the inside diameter seems a little on the small side. Has alot of meat in the walls and I thought about boring it out or hand hogging it with a die grinder, buy never got around to it.

I'm about to convert back to a straight style water neck and this one is available for sale. If you're interested let me know.

on edit I saved a differnt image and linked it.

who new SEARS still sold auto parts..
http://www.sears.com/canton-racing-products-80-057-water-neck-ford/p-SPM7592480008P?PDP_REDIRECT=false

I haven't bought parts from SEARS for like 20 years,
30 years ago, I used to flip though the mag wheels section and dream about the Keystone Classics and Anson wheels in the Big Catalog.

We are a dealer for the Australian Muscle Parts.
We have the billet straight up one on hand and some other items,
but we have not gotten the swivel housing in yet.

Here is a link to the product and maybe there is another dealer in the
US that may have some inventory.
