Thermostat problem

Asked by Apr 06, 2015 at 08:30 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet S-10 STD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1985 S-10 With a 2.5 Iron Duke, thermostat gasket went out. So I started working on it, took out one bolt, then went for the front one and the bolt SNAPPED(pissed) got my drill out, drilled through the bolt, grabbed a E-Z out and it SNAPPED(super PISSED) took it all apart, brought it down to NAPA, they said 50 if they can take it out $H!T. I just wondered if anyone knows where I can get a THERMOSTAT HOUSING ADAPTOR or should I just give NAPA a try Thank you Nate

You can get a new housing,but i think i would try and let napa get it out,may come out cheaper in the long run.

Napa can't get it out, no new replacement part or boneyard has it
