Plastic Thermostat Housing 2001 Piaggio Porter

Post by jerseyci on Sat Nov 12, 2016 3:41 pm

Hi

Can anyone help with where I can find a replacement housing as I am going round and round in google searches and getting nowhere with ebay or breakers.

Cheers

Daniel

Once you've looked in a hen's mouth and up a rocking horses arse you'll find one... Out of the many, many hard to find parts for the Hijet you have discovered the hardest next to good headlights.

Thanks.

I had a suspicion that getting this van for free as it 'ran a little bit hot' might not be the bargain it first appeared. Back to getting it repaired then.

Cheers

It should be possible to get that housing by 3d printing nowadays somehow.

Is there a thread where someone has been successful with 3D printing, or a business who offers 3D printing services ?

You can get plenty of good parts from the breakers listed on ebay. I've had excellent service from a breakers called R&R Motors recently

I have got  several that  didn't get roasted in the fire -  remarkably. They lived in a cupboard upstairs in the Office/Tearoom. Email  me on    thehijetmaniow@gmail.com   and have a haggle. Not letting one go for Peanuts though.

As Logi says  they are Hens Teeth and other analogies.

And I definitely am not selling any of my  Headlights for sure. Rarer than a literal New Zealand Kiwi  Bird.
