I broke the small plastic fitting on the thermostat trying to get the hose off, has anyone had any luck trying to replace the plastic parts without having to buy a new thermostat?

I tried REALLY hard to remove it from my old thermostat, but just mangled it. I think it may be pressed in, but it might also be glued or melted in.

If you can drill out the remaining plastic, you could tap it out and screw in a threaded brass hose barb fitting.
(you probably have to remove the thermostat to get at it to drill out)

I have been telling everyone that the O.E. thermostat assembly has been junk for years. Stop wasting your time with them and get something that uses quality materials and is repairable.

If you plan to keep your Jeep for many more miles, get a HDS model 001 !

One of the best mod you can do on those little engine :BANANA:
