we have a 1978 skyline at work for a head job.
the thermostat housing was buggered so ordered one from bursons.
they send us a housing from killkenny castings cant fit the temp sender in to housing hits inside and twists before its tight.
send it back and get another one just as crappy.
ordered a new nissian one.came in today.
guess what exactly the same as they sell at bursons killkenny casting.
same thing happens cant fit temp sender.
not bagging kilkenny either use them heaps with out any probs

Hiya Jim

Happy New Year.

This should be no surprise to you, you have been in the car business to long to be surprised by anything the manufactures do. LOL.

Cheers

Gooday maaaaaaaaaaaaaaate,

You really need to stop doing head jobs Jim, especially if the part doesnt fit.

I would certainly be asking Nissan where are you to get the right part from? Second hand? Scrap yard?

Take care buddy....miss you long time

PS...I need to chat with you about a car service...

Cheers

Diamond,

i am not sure what you are getting at but not every part on every car are made by the car manufacturer themselves. A lot of stuff is outsourced. Sometimes parts get superseded and in Toyota's case sometimes you need other parts to fit also. Maybe seeing as this is so old this is the bcase and you need a different sender unit to match the housing. Talk to your Nissan dealer as he will have to find the answer for you.

I guess the Skyline had the wrong temp sender :-)))) and you've had 3 correct housings. Guess you'll have to order a temp sender now :-))) Yep, pretty frustrating.

Cheers
