I am having trouble locating a 180 degree thermostat and gasket for my 1958 172 diesel. The original part numbers are: EBE-8575-B & EAF-8255-A respectively. I found what I think is a cress reference for the thermostat, STANT #13358 available at Amazon for $5.96 (link below if I did that right). Several outlets have a gasket but no 180 degree thermostats. I hate to pay for shipping twice. Does anyone know if that STANT number is right and/or have a cross reference for the gasket?

Opinions on the correct operating temperature for this engine are also welcome.

 Re: Thermostat & Gasket for 172 Diesel in reply to profitt, 09-12-2017 18:00:30 has a cross reference on their website. Searching for EBE8575B resulted in Gates part numbers: #33008 & #33008S. Booth available at Amazon with prime shipping rates. So now I have 3 thermostat options and no gasket option that doesn't come with $7 shipping for an $0.85 part!

Guess I'll pick a thermostat and make the gasket as suggested. It'll be several weeks before I can get back to this. I'll post my success/failure as time permits.

Take that thermostat with you for size, to your local NAPA dealer. I don't think that thermostat is unique to Ford only.

Parts site shows the 180 degree thermostat for the 801 series diesel or kerosene engine as C4NN8575A, but that one's no easier to find at a reasonable price or a cross reference for. They appear to be available through CNH, but Messicks and partspring both want a little over $50.00 for one.

Can't help you much...
It's pretty easy to just make a simple gasket like that with a piece of cereal box and a pair of scissors.
If you want to go first class buy a roll of gasket material from Napa, etc.
As to the operating temp of that engine, I think 180 is pretty cold. Something in the 190s would be preferred.
Those diesels came from the factory with a two bladed fan instead of the 3 blade on the gassers.
I think Ford wanted them to run warm.

They are cold blooded engines. Mine never gets over 160. Don't remember what the thermostat is for degree rating. I do know it is the correct one though.
