Hey guys,

While browsing the web, I have been unable to find a listing for the 333-180 tstat through either Summit or FlowKooler. I did manage to find the 333-192 though.

I emailed FlowKooler and will let you know what I find out, in the meantime would a 192 work in lieu of the 180? I know it is a slightly hotter operating temp but I don't see it affecting performance a whole lot.

Thanks,

Corey

I always appreciate your input. I'm going to order up the 192 and call it a day.

I mean no disrespect, nor do I want to argue, but if a thermostat doesn't have the copper colored button on the bottom, designed to mate with the hole in the orifice plate below it, it will not function properly.

Respectfully I've been fighting this battle for 40 years, I wish the solution were as simple as ripping a list off the internet. Punch those numbers into eBay and see how many of them look like the picture above. The manufacturers have substituted and cross-referenced thermostats that don't work. They've been doing it for 40 years.

George,
I have about 15 of those NOS in the attic. What do you think about the markings on the side "towards radiator"?
As it is in your picture I thought that would be the correct way to install it but the markings suggest it may be upside down.
Never noticed it before.

"towards ^ radiator", points up indicating the flow direction towards the radiator.
