I bought this housing to go with my electric fans. I like that it has the port for a thread-in fan probe, but thats about it. The chrome plating flaked off as I installed it, and the bottom of the housing actually cracked open after tightening the bolts, giving me a huge coolant leak and setting me back another week on my project. I will be getting my stock housing drilled and tapped for the fan probe.

When I received this, within 2 days the chrome started flaking off - and I hadn't even taken it out of the plastic! Not up to your standards! You were gracious enough to give me in-store credit on it though - thank you!

I Love The Idea They Had To Thread Both Ports So They Can Be Plugged Instead Of Capped. Looks Better And No More Worries About Leaks

  Fits well, hard to tighten bolts

As always, I received this product very quickly from LMS and I was initially very pleased. The gasket was extra thick and the extra hole in the water neck was great to put a radiator fan control sensor. The fit was great, however, the lower right "alan-key" type screw was nearly impossible to thoroughly tighten with the high performance water pump I have...I had to cut my key down to get it to fit and I still couldn't get it to go all the way, just good enough I guess. Also, the chrome finish started to peel off before I even had the bolts tightened down which was extremely disappointing and now it looks cheap. I will probably take the water neck off in the future and try to peel off the rest of the chrome finish so at least it will look even. Also, I highly recommend you purchase separate bolts that have standard hex-heads so you can adequately tighten them. If I could do it all again, I may have checked out the local auto store just to see if they have something better.

I bought this to dress up the engine and as soon as it was installed I could see failure in the housing wall and had to replace it. The chrome started flaking on installation. Don't waste your money!

For decades in the Hot Rod business, the name Mr. Gasket has been synonymous with race-winning power and performance. For a brand to remain dominant for so many years, it takes focus, a commitment to its core market and a keen sense of what the customer wants.

The history of the Mr. Gasket brand is a real American success story. It is a brand that was started by a few guys with a great product and an ambitious plan. It started basically as a one-man operation — hand-cutting custom-made gaskets and selling them from the trunk of a sedan at local Cleveland racetracks and has grown to include a multi-faceted international powerhouse of the industry’s strongest brand names: ACCEL, Hays, Jacobs Electronics, Lakewood, Mallory and of course Mr. Gasket.
