Thermostat Gaskets

A wide range of thermostat gaskets are available in pre-cut sizes in plain, or adhesive-backed. Adhesive-backed heavy gasket material is also available for hand-cut gaskets.

Radiator Pressure Caps

Motorcraft® Standard and safety vent radiator pressure caps offer extensive coverage for most cars and trucks as well as a variety of farm and construction equipment.

These quality-built radiator pressure caps meet O.E. specifications for Ford and competitive-make vehicles. - Standard swivel-seal radiator caps are designed to provide increased durability and can now be removed without damage to the rubber atmospheric seal - Steel sheels are zinc-plated to resist corrosion and rust - Pressure valve springs are made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel which maintains calibrated pressure consistently for maximum service life - The durable rubber pressure valve gasket is compounded to resist high temperatures and deterioration by coolant chemicals - Dependable pressure and vacuum relief features, which control the effect of pressure/vacuum cycling to extend radiator and hose life - Motorcraft® radiator caps employ a "positive low-pressure stop" feature to prevent accidental cap removal
