I've done some snooping to find out who the manufacturer of these swivel water necks are and have a couple of sources. Of course nobody is open on the weekend but I'll follow up on Monday.Can't buy from CHP (actually won't buy)maybe from Cadco in new mexico. I'll check with them.Thanks
Maybe I'm just anal (no comment, Mario) but at times I'm like a dog with a bone (remembering when I was a guy with a b..... never mind). Anyway, there is potentially some good news regarding options for new thermostat housings.I looked at the necks at jegs and summit and none really state measurements and I hate to say it but I dont want to buy anything and argue with it.I dug in my pile of hoses and found a kinda sharp 90* and cut it down and angled itso I have the hose looking good for now. I'm going to pull radiator and put in the rubber flaps so when driving at speed the air can go thru the flaps for more cooling. I read that at speed the air can cause the air to build up and stop flowing some because there more air going in than what the fan can move.(with the taurus fan its hard to believe if that is happening ) can't hurt to try ,besides those flaps are put in areas that are a ways from the fan diameter. I have 10 or so inchs from fan to edge on one side and the fan is on the edge at the other. So I have a dead spot or maybe a slow spot. i will see.
Darius I Thank you for checking out stuff on the necks from the manufacturer. Others may want that info if you found it. Now for all the guys that were saying about jegs and summit I also thank you for your efforts.
