    Definitely. A parts warehouse might have 80 of this, 80 of that, etc. a dealership would most likely have 80 of what works on that make.

    It can't be really old. The box has a bar code.
    What happens if you try the bar code?

    It was a chevy/dodge dealership but that doesn't mean it fits one of those makes. Been lots of other stuff in there.

    Box is dated 97. That doesn't mean it's not for an older vehicle just means it was made in 97.

    I looked up BWD Automotive Corp. under "Engine Management" and didn't get much either, except 1,100+ pages of sensors. :confused: https://www.bwdbrand.com/en

    Or a marine application.
     
  10. I think it fits a Yugo!
     
  11. Yugo thermostat housings have an extra hole for mounting. Thus it proves that Yugo's were over engineered well made vehicles, and are also ................. yugo.PNG non H.A.M.B. friendly. :D

    Label does have a date on it. Sometimes you can find a date on the box printing also. Did BW buy out someone just previous to this and repackage with other part mfg. number?

    Yugo’s had 4 lug nuts holding the tires on. Could it be Pontiac or Ford?

    Post some info on the bolt spacing and the hose ID that would fit and perhaps someone can come up with a creative use for these?
     
  17. Did you know that all Yugos came with a heated back window as standard equipment? That was to help keep your hands warm when you had to push them in the winter . . .
    :rolleyes:

    @SS327 - You are right, it was the Le Car by Renault with 3 lugs. Good memory!

    My buddy’s junkyard was full of those damned things. And I worked at a Buick dealership that they thought it would be a good idea to sell those stupid things. Yea, the deck was stacked in my favor.

    My guess is that the best fit is the scrap metal bin....think of the time you'd save if they just all got melted down and made into something that someone knows what it fits.

    yeah, I know how hard that is to do

    If you ever sell at a swap meet, you can line them up nicely on a table and price them at $2 each.
    Lots of knuckleheads (like me) would buy one or two because they're new and the price is right.

    Ford 144/170 6 cylinder looked like this.

    I have not seen BWD cooling system products in many years, makes me wonder if they sold it off in the late 90's?

    Where were you 20 years ago when we had 500 sets of Ford NOS flat head points and condensers that came over the fence of a Ford assembly plant...............we couldn't give them away at Carlisle since they were not in Ford script boxes and ended up selling them for $.10 each to a guy who had boxes printed up and was selling them for $15 each the next year........................

    Trust me I've considered it more then once. If I had one or two they would be gone but I just can't bring myself to scrap 80 plus of them without knowing what they fit.

    Those Ford 6's were also used in some big forklift applications, could be for that. Also one time I had an off-topic car that had a plastic thermostat housing which cracked and I was able to buy a metal replacement, it's possible that this will not look just like the factory part.

    I know that's getting further away and not closer to the answer, but it's all I've got. That's the problem with a lot of these old parts. They only have value if you can identify them. I've gotten a lot of great deals that way, but I've also got a huge shelf full of "heartbreakers" that I could never ID and may never get ID'd.

    Toyota 22R housing, Dorman 902-5073. Looks like they made them with different angles, slightly. Now we know.
