Thermostatic Sandwich Plate - available from Flexolite
It incorporates a thermostatic valve to help the engine warm up quickly; the valve is fully open at 80ºC to ensure that all the oil is then routed through the cooler.
The connections are made through ½ BSP female ports (we can supply adaptors to other threads and sizes). The locating screw can be supplied to suit most car engines – ask for details or specify your required thread type when ordering.
If you have an older car which does not use a spin-on filter you will need to fit a Flexolite oil filter adaptor first.
