Have you checked the Facebook selling sites like Big Redd T25 spares uk and the T3/25 spare parts uk group. They come up for sale every now and then. What's up with your old one, they can be refurbished to a point?

Hi David thanks for the message have taken your advice and applied to join Big Redd. Problem I have is that I bought a project and the thermostat housing is among a number of items that were missing in the first place. My van is an early 1985 and there's a mixture of later parts and hence I'm taking the pain of working through what I haven't got...

Best Regards

Neil

Also try Mick an NWVW he has supplied a number to members over the years as he breaks vans
Expect any second hand one to need work, bolts sieze and may need a machine shop to remove them and make good if you don't have the skills.

I’ve got this one. It has a bolt that needs removing. You could put a blob of weld on the nut and see it it comes out or get a machine shop to have a go. It weighs 640g combined.

Hi Double o Seven

thanks very much for the post. Yes I'd be very interested in buying it off you. Can you let me know what you'd like for it and also how I can buy it off you. (Newbie on the forum)


Best Regards

Have one in fair condition. One spigot is a bit corroded at tip. Yet came from a working van in late 2018. And been stored with oil inside.
Another forum user wants to borrow it for a template, making out of copper. But not come back to since virus headlined :shock:
