Hello everybody,
I have just joined this forum and and very pleased to see it exists.
I am just about to put my car back on the road (now has MOT). I was checking the thermostat which does not appear to move under temperature. Does anyone have or know of one for sale ?
Your replies will be much appreciated.

We have new Beta thermostats on the shelf.



Thank you for replying to my request for thermostats. How can i purchase one from you ? Please can you let me know how you would like me to pay you and I will send etc the funds to you.
Many many thanks,

Hi Simon,
If you are refering to the 3-way thermostat, it doesn.t move under pressure, it moves because of the heat/temperature of the water.  There are 2 ways of testing this, one is to run it under a hot boiling water into one of the water holes, then you can see if the spring and mechanism move, otherwise if it is in the car, run it for about 5-10mins if the bottom hose that connects to the radiator is cold, then you will need to change the thermostat.
Hope this helps,
