1961 ford f600

Bought this truck a couple years ago. Always suspected it had no thermostate. It has an inline 6 cyl. engine. When I went to put a thermo in there was nothing in the head to hold it in place. The hole in the head was bigger than the thermo. The cap has a recess for it but nothing behind it. Am I missing a part?

We had a 63 F-600 with the 223 six cyl engine, so that may be what your truck has. You may have a thermostat for a 240/300 that won't fit.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see
In that case, you don't have the engine that you think you have.

They give you the wrong thermosat. Get one for 292 or 330. there about 2 1/2 in across.

I've seen quite a few thermostats in the upper hose itself. I read the post below. I'm not sure why a person would put a thermostat in the bottom hose. The engine would be overheated by the time that would open up if it would at all!

Does it have shutters on the radiator or a place to put them.

get the proper thermostat that will fit the recess in the neck, then glue the gasket in place and reinstall/ that is the way it works.

The gasket hole is the same size as the head. Nothing to hold the thermo in. I can make a gasket to hold it but that doesn't seem correct to me. If the gasket breaks down the thermo will fall out.

again, get the proper thermostat, it will just fit the recessed part of housing, a little larger than opening in head. Gasket helps hold in place until installed.

Thermo fits recess perfectly! Hole in head is larger!

Sounds like you have the wrong thermostat housing on it.. The recess in the thermostat housing should be larger than the hole in the head, been that way on every Ford I have worked on.

I had a vehicle once that the thermostat was on the bottom hose. This isn"t the case is it?
