CLEVELAND V8 Thermostat INFO

Recommended Posts

 

TMeyer Track Boss thermostats are the best on the market atm, for 302/351C, plus 351M/400 engines.

Might be cheaper to purchase direct from TMeyer themselves, if you can wait for shipping.

Dayco DT66A is similar, but apparently crap quality now.

They used to be supplied from the same mob who make the TrackBoss/Robert Shaw ones - Caltherm in the USA

(previously called Robert Shaw Controls, then Cooper Standard Automotive)

Near on 100 bucks  for a thermostat ?   There's been so much talk of Clevo specific thermostats like these of late . For many years no one bothered or even heard of this and didn't have issues ..  Sure seems like a social media following to fix other issues ?????

 

Opening up for discussion :)

Yeah, I've run both the DT66 and the current 351 has a TMeyer jobby, no real difference.  The DT66a ran fine with an XF 6cyl radiator, the TMeyer is running cool with a standard XB 3 core.

Both with standard fan and spacer with shroud.
