411 thermostat

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

1967 411 1.3L.  got a sticky thermostat - looking for a replacement.  everything I find is listed as compatible with th 1.6L....  is it the same?  if not, does anyone have a part number for the J13 motor?

 

Thanks,
Ken

OK, 1.6L is the same as the 1.3L, found the thermostat and gasket.  now, i can't find the o-ring!

 

Thanks,

Ken

If you mean gasket, Chrysler corporate thermostat gaskets have the proper holes and side width to seal.  Universal gaskets are to thin to properly seal Datsun thermostat housings.

What happens is previous owners neglect the proper coolant antifreeze mix that also neutralizes and prevents corrosion. The thermostat housing and the thermostat cover tends to become pitted. I've fixed a few by passing it back and forth over sandpaper on a smooth surface. In bad cases a double gasket will work. I've never used RTV. It makes your L series look like a Chev engine.
