Thanks that's great! Just bought a Gates 33218 on Amazon for £31
Thanks - I think this one is probably coming from the US too via Amazon judging by the delivery time (10 days). That £31 is a delivered cost though so probably about the same. Good advice re testing it too thanks.Rock Auto also ships world wide and that same thermostat is available from them for quite a bit less then the £31.
Something that small doesn't cost that much to ship if you don't mind the wait _ just a thought.

Isdyl, make sure and test it on the stove with your old one as a reference.
I had a TR7 once, as you know was a very poorly designed engine that was prone to overheating.
I went through 4 Gates defective thermostats that failed to open on the stove.
Testing is a must.
I think that bit of heat helped as well, more then you know.Oh yes - must have been the Acetone/ATF! Still waiting for the thermostat and looks like I’ll probably have to make a gasket and the rubber seal.
