Shutter-Opening Thermostat

Hi All,

My shutters suddenly quit opening. Last time I drove the car they opened fully, now nothing. I checked for coolant level, right up, I checked for any obstructions to the assembly and they open fine if I push on the rod, so I'm down to the T-stat. Can they be had?? Possibly rebuilt (although I have removed mine and it is a solder-sealed unit) or are there any other fixes, short of wiring the shutters open?? I can and would do that if I had to, but the opening and closing of them has always been a cool feature of this car and I would dearly like to keep them functional. Any help or direction much appreciated. Thanks, Chris.

I am guessing there are folks all over the place that rebuild them. I recently had mine done by Scott Henningsen in Salinas California. He did a great job. PM me if you want contact information for Scott.

Big Kev,
Any idea why this thread 'restarted' itself in a new & separate post??? I certainly didn't do anything! Chris.
