Not really sure I understand what your wanting to do bjantz...do you want to install the thermostat and remove a tee fitting?Im going on my third thermostat!!!! If i decide to install it.there is a plastic t fitting in its place.does any one know if this is ok to do?
Have to look at the parts manual but I would assume even the Cowmander has a restrictor washer on the other head...buy one and put in place of thermostatHow ir can I get that washer.I take free flowing is bbad
No....you take the thermostat out and throw it away, then replace it with the washer...it slows down the coolant flow like the thermostat does so coolant doesn't flow too fast thru your radiator...the ONLY negative attribute encountered is slower coolant warmup in the wintertime.Does that reducing washer go on the bottom side of thermal stat
If ya got a computer, its the way to shop that microfiche....I won't try from my phone....... look for cooling or front/rear cylinder section...one cylinder should show a thermostat, the other should have a washer.... that's the washer I'm referencing.What size hole, couldn't find that part for the commander from that website . Thanks for the help
Well bjantz, I checked that website out and learned something along the way.....my referencing was of the Rotax 800 engine family for the thermostat removal / washer installation that I mentioned....it seems that is still the normal thermostat location for the Commander 800 also to date. What I didn't know is that the Commander 1000 has a remote thermostat housing tee'd into the radiator hoses instead of in the head like the 800 is. I never have looked on BLR's 1000 for it and was totally unaware of that remote housing. So if you have an 800, my thermostat removal / washer install will work....if it's a 1000, I have no idea until I open ours up to check it out.....sorry for leading everyone astray that reads this with the 1000 engine!What size hole, couldn't find that part for the commander from that website .
