Can anyone tell me if the thermostat in an EA71 is the same diameter
as
a thermostat in an EA82?

Thanks in advance

Try checking out some of the OEM parts websites. I have a funny feeling a you'll get the same part number for all EAXX thermostats.

Not sure Skip. I know for sure that the ea71&81 are the same but not sure about the 82.Also not sure if they are the same temp thermostat.

Can anyone tell me if the thermostat in an EA71 is the same diameter
as
a thermostat in an EA82?

Thanks in advance

thanks for all the replies guys, that sure sounds right Mick

there a few place on my cars that I will only use
the factory OEM part

This is one of those places.

The 78 Brat I am picking up today from biffanyus has no heat -
temp gage peg never moves in this temperature.
Warms up normal in the summer.

My check mark goes beside a bad t-stat or no t-stat

I have a couple new units for EA82's, will take one and throw it in before my 2.5 hour trip home.

Could be one more "Skip-a-sode" comin' up
as Tommy has not driven it much lately.

Hey Skip....offer stands if you need to call with questions. You have my #.

You can cover a LOT more information talking than typing.

Keep me posted.

(Oh.....know of any nice properties for sale up there? Looking to move back to PA)
