can someone with a 84 that still has it's original thermostat housing post a picture of it for me, or if you can tell me kinda what it looks like it would help me alot, I know theres a difference between a 82 and a 84 and a 84 vette upper radiator hose is the only molded one I can find that will go around the back side of my alternator and still reach the radiator ( because I put a camaro serpentine drive on it) only problem is my thermostat housing still causes a problem & do you know if the 84's thermostat housing will fit the 82's crossfire manifold

thanks

I replaced my thermostat 3 weeks ago. All I had to do was remove the Air filter and it exposed the piece that holds the thermostat. Mine was at the end with the red circle around it at th e end of the chrome braded hose. I hope this was what you were looking for. I am not a mechanic, but I am learning!

84 intake picture

I hope this is large enough to see the detail.

Excuse the mess, this is a work in progress.

I imagine so.

Try putting this intake together from scratch.

There use to be a Holley and Edlebrock intake on this engine.

Talk about a learning experience.

Thermostat housing

Thanks, it's been a real pain trying to track down all the parts.

The housing points up at an angle (30-45deg)and towards the valve covers. Standard for Chevy 350
