    Hey guys,

    I am putting a serpentine belt setup on my car and have a question. I am using the gm style setup and have bought the upper radiator hose off a third gen, but it looks like I need to change my theromstat housing. Has anyone done this yet? Do you know what type of housing I need?

    Thanks,

    Marty

    I ran the stock housing but the hose did not sit correctly and I did worry about it getting caught by the belt. I have since gone to TPI so I take any pictures. I'll look to see if I have any in my files.


    EDIT: Sorry no pictures. :(

    No clearance issues at all. Can I send pictures to your email? I have a few with the old carb set up and my ill designed "filler in the hose" cooling system. And I also have some with the TPI setup.
