Thermastatic valve

Can someone enlighten me about what the purpose of the thermostatic valve on the base of the air filter and what it does on a blue motor?

Thanks in advance.
Cheers, Mick.

Temp switch answered

Recently wanted to know about temp switch, red six EH on. Correct one to use, if it should screw all the way home (if below thermostat) and the supposed myth of dash warning light coming on when cranked? Found my answers on fb, and the myth proven fact. See pics, cheers all. ps Dr Terry is still God 😉

EH Temp switch.

Thanks all for advice, think Andrew summed it up. Will go for flip down guage being original car however would still like to see a pic of someone's unmodified 179 with switch below thermostat, also light deffinately meant to come on when cranked from EH on and originally below thermostat on 179hp! PS has anyone seen one flash on when key first turned? Thanks again all, Archie.

EH Coolant Sensor for dash light

What to do next? Was sold a Fuelmiser CTS123 as being correct for EH179, didn't work, turns out meant for guage. Downloaded catalogue to check and bought a Fuelmiser CTS124 meant for dash light. Wouldn't screw all the way in (below thermostat) but didn't leak, didn't work anyway because light not coming on when turn the key (checked light by earthing and it does work). Called Fuelmiser today and was told info correct but catalogue now obsolete and only oil sender being sold now for EH 2.9litre. Both senders still being made however no longer listed as suitable?

VK 3.3 Recon'd Long motor for sale, Perth (VK Sump)

Hey guys, I have for sale a new Recon 3.3 Black motor, heads set up for gas. Located in Perth
I needed a new donk for the pig, which I purchased from an engine builders in Warrnambool, VIC. Lo and Behold, I bought both off the fella, as freight was an easy setup.

I've set mine up for the HQ, and have the other sitting here, hoping for a good home (Otherwise I'll move it to Sydney with me in December).

If you're genuinely interested, you can email me at nstyhj@gmail.com

EH radiator conversion

Have posted about my EH having overheating probs, when stationary or under load. Have done everything that was suggested, head coming off next week, to be crack tested, although there has been no indication of water and oil mixing, and cleaning/flushing water jacket. Fitting a HQ V8 radiator has also been suggested, what needs to be done to fit same, I would imagine dimensions would be different, presently running STD 202 with trimatic
