I went to replace the seals on my thermostat yesterday and found the housing was crumbling, so I need a new one. But I've found there are two housings for the S1.
I've seen a parts list for a local parts place (EAI) which shows the VIN changeover for this, indicating mine's the early one. My build date was July 90. The new seals I was just sold are the dual flattened o-rings, but the one in the housing was the other type that 'wraps' round the thermostat, single piece.
So I'm a bit confused. From what I can figure, I need the early type housing (53mm?) with the two o-ring seals. Can anyone confirm?
As it happens, I have it sealed and going fine but the hose is just gripping onto about 10mm of stub.
