Water neck Water outlet Thermostat Housing

Post by 1958 Edselynn » Tue 23. Aug 2011, 11:07

These are all of the names I have seen listed for this part and yet I cant find a simple replacement part!! I am frustrated. I need this part for an Edsel 58 Corsair. I have the E475 or 410c ;) :) id . Mine has completely rotted through on the hose end. Does anyone know if this part is the same as one found on the later 59--63 Merc 430 and or 390's?? I cant find it under Edsel- maybe if I search for a Mercury of same size?? Any thoughts??
Thanks!!

EDF-8592-A, same as all 1958-59 383, 410 and 430 cid for Mercury. Not sure about 1960, because they might have gone to a coolant reservoir like Ford did that year. Thunderbird appears to have had the coolant reservoir with all the 1958/60 models, so no dice there.

Talk to John Fowlie at Big "M" Auto Salvage in Williams, California, and tell him Gauss sent you.

It's been a long time since I've visited his yard, but he might remember me because I was with Skinner and we took him and his wife out for steaks. Actually, I think Phil treated all of us!

John sold me a nice, original Corsair electric wiper motor and coordinator.
