Default Thermostat Housing

It seems as though my husband put my thermostat in wrong on my 98 Ford Ranger XLT 6 Cy. 3.0. He cracked the housing from the top side hose. Anyone know the exact name or number for this part.

I have called a couple of auto parts stores and no one seems to have this part. He went to an auto salvage today and there was not a part available.

Thermostat outlet housing is correct. Should be able to get one off any Ford V6. Clean it up good and use JB Weld, I've patched blocks and transfer cases with it.

About $30.00 dollars direct from ford part number XL5Z8592AB

$26.79 RockAuto.com not including shipping

enter 25765411790197 in the "How did you hear about us" line of the shopping cart and get 5% off the order

If you decide not to go either of those routes here are some ford vehicles that share the same housing
FORD AEROSTAR (1991 - 1997)

FORD RANGER EDGE 2001
