This housing contains the bi-metal coil that de-activates the choke of the VV once it has been warmed up by cooling liquid.
The coil often fails after a good number of service years and is not available separately.
So a replacement housing with coil (like this part here) is then required for a correct operation of the choke.
Please note that there have been different versions over the years with differences in the diameter of the coolant unions, location of the lugs and the number of windings of the coil.
This particular version has unions for coolant hose with an internal diameter of 8 mm.
These are original New-Old-Stock, housings.
Production of these housings was stopped many years ago and the existing stocks are being depleted rapidly.
Consequently, these housings will be slightly "shop soiled" from storage, as visible in the pictures.
And... they are only available as long as the stock lasts!
