Carl - I just took an older one out of my '3. (replaced with a nos sleeved
one) Not sure if it is an original. They looked the same except for some
markings on the bottom. I was going to test it out and keep it as backup,
but if you want to take a looksee, let me know.

Subject: sleeved thermostats again
A) Anyone have an old sleeved thermostat from a TR3 or 4 I
could see (or
measure for me)... Fred Thomas was kind enough to mail his
'bellows' type to
me from his TR3 to look at (I am reimbursing his costs) ...
but it doesn't
have the sleeve part.
B) Has anyone bought the Jaguar type 'sleeved/skirted'
thermostat from Moss
($32) and scrutinized the fit and function inside our
C) Is Moss' thermostat an exact duplicate of our original
thermostat design ... or is it simply the only sleeved
to us and a cross reference 'semi-fit' product from Jaguar?
'64 TR4 in full restoration mode ... and 'very serious' that
cooling system works right and to it's full capacity this
