I am ready to order a radiator hose(s), cap, and thermostat for my '76 LTD. I have placed the following in my shopping cart:

Gates 21008 hose
Stant 10229 radiator cap and
Stant 13868 thermostat

I'm pretty confident in the hose recommended here, but am a bit confused about the other 2 items. The images I find show the OEM t-stat having the valve mechanism centered in the housing, but the 13868 has it offset. Also, there are comments here that there are questions about 10229 vs 10227 and gl1000 vs gl1100.

Can anyone advise so I can complete the order? Many TIA.

I'm not so sure about an inner child, but I have an inner idiot that surfaces every now and then.. :mrgreen:

I spent the extra cash and got the EXACT hose for my 78.

They ain't cheap but are a true fit.

Just went through this with member on here with a after market radiator cap. Wound up having to bend the tabs on cap to make it seal.Honda cap number 19045-692-003 fits everytime. The stock Honda thermostat 19300-611-005 is the only way to go. The hole (the jiggle wiggle)in the stock stat goes to the top. Your bike will warm up quicker and perform as advertised. O-ring for the thermostat 91307-MBO-003. Top hose is available 19501-431-000 also. The bottom hose is the napa hose trick but aftermarket molded bottom hose is available also. OEM when you can. Works and fits every time and no worries.And you will be confident you did it right the first time.

I don't see the need to cheap out esp with a very li9mited edition like the 76 Ltd.

But to each their own

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

Yeah, I've got to agree for about $60 you can have silicone hoses that fit perfectly. Easy choice. I'll be ordering those very soon.
