I appreciate the advice donít get me wrong,
But I am going to cross my fingers and use it with the genuine Ford gaskets and O-rings.

Very good reviews on this part
For whatever thatís worth

Anyone know how this regulator drops down into the hole?

Everything fell out at once when I took it apart.

Place the long one down on a table with the end with the holes in it towards the bottom. Then the shorter one goes inside the long one with the flange on towards the top. Then the spring drops in. Now this assembly goes into the round hole in the header, spring first. Cheers!

Well the bad news is,
I found a crack in the rear housing.

So I called a friend of mine that has a shop and he said yes I have a few of those.
So I ended up getting a complete (used) cooler with both housings for $100

Cooler was in good shape and the Rear housing had the clips to hold the valves in.
Which was a plus.

I cleaned everything up and gave the cooler a paint job
Put my new genuine Ford gaskets and O-rings in.
And installed everything this morning.

Took it around the block/so far so good no leaks/looks good.

I also got my Amazon cooler in the mail today which I will be returning tomorrow.

But I must say that it looks pretty nice and is pretty much identical to the Ford part as far as I could tell
Using my cheap digital calipers it seems to be the same measurements.

The gaskets also look like genuine Ford gaskets but thatís hard to prove.

I ended up with an extra front housing so if anyone needs one let me know before it ends up in the recycling bin.

Thanks for the help fellas.

Thanks Patrick.

I ended up using a ratchet strap to put it all together and installing as 1 unit.

not saying it's impossible, But I had a HELL of a time getting the housings on....
well greased up o-rings and super clean housings.... It just wasn't going...

and I'm no weakling...


anyway, Job Done.
