A and B are the same size.


Running a thermostat will keep your engine temperature more even. You will get better performance overall and you also will help keep condensation from forming in the crankcase.


My opinion,

FWIW, I prefer a 180 thermostat.

The A and B hoses are the same diameter but the B hose is a couple of inches longer.

Hallo Abone,

I have 180 too. Driving between 5 C - 35 C - works perfect on my Model A!
