im in need of one. not the 2 bolt cover, the one that bolts to the cylinder head with the sensor in it. i cracked mine while replacing the sensor.

anybody got one? or can anyone go to a yard and grab one for me? will pay for time! no yards near me have anything.

OEM does not carry it? Have you got a picture?

I have one, but if yours could be welded, that might be a better solution, and a cheaper one if you know of a welder doing aluminum.

There is also the magic that is JB weld, might make at least a temporary fix while you source another part.

Oh yeah, Trickee Dick's Used Car lot loves it.

For thermostat housing, one would have to clean up inside, and use a file to grove it ideally. Then JB it.
