160 Degree Thermostat for 1965-1973 Mustangs with a 6-Cylinder Engine and 1965-1995 Mustangs with an 8-Cylinder Engine.

Keeping your engine at top performance while maintaining optimum engine temperature is key. Installing this new 160 degree direct replacement thermostat can prevent serious damage to your engine. A faulty thermostat could cause loss of coolant flow and incorrect temperature readings. Mustang owners tend to install 160 degree thermostats when they race their cars. This lower temperature rating means the thermostat will open sooner to start cooling the engine quicker.

Features a copper "hat" that seals against a bypass restrictor plate inside the block. This closes the bypass circuit when the thermostat opens, so that all coolant has to go through the radiator. This keeps the temperature from fluctuating too much, thus causing overheating.

After years of service, thermostats tend to stick or provide faulty operation. To keep this from happening, replace the thermostat during regular tuneups to keep everything working properly. Adding new coolant with the thermostat will help keep your engine running at it's proper operating temperature.
