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!

3 Stars   Fits well, hard to tighten bolts
By on 9/12/2014
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.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

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

2 Stars   not what i expected.

I got this to go alond with my electric fans for the sensor and it looked decent, first off the fitting for the water pump hose on this was smaller then the factory hose well no big deal, then I noticed the chrome was flaking off that stinks but again no big deal, then is leaked coolant as soon as I started my car even after many attemps of tighten the bolts, this part was more problems then it solved, poor quality

Just like everyone else writes, the chrome is cheap. I don't know if its not from prepping it right when they paint it, but it flakes off right away. This thing lasted 3 days, then it chipped off and I painted it. If you're looking for something like this save your money, just clean up the one you have and paint it

I installed this and within less than a year in a garaged pampered car, the chrome has almost completely flaked off. I would have gladly paid more for a part that would have stood up better. I emailed LMR last week and am still awaiting a response.

Chrome plating flaked before I even got it to the manifold. Lower ear cracked when tightened giving me a nice drip. Most late model restoration products are top notch. but this one fell off the quality wagon unfortunately.

By on 8/11/2015
I bought this as a less expensive option, and it serves that purpose, but the chrome fell off immediately. Within 24 hours of install, prior to even being used, the chrome was falling like Autumn leaves.

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!

Image uploaded by Jordan O. Finish is great. Fits my 1995 gt fine. Gasket isn't adhesive so I'd recommend that to ease install. Threads are plated on the bypass nipple and a bit rough, use plenty of Teflon tape to ensure seal.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
