Looking for info on the internal parts for the "shutter-stat" on a 31 DG 8. What does it look like? Any info on where I might find one? Located in the central part of South Carolina.

I was told by an older guy the term "shutterstat" was used to avoid confusion with "thermostat". Probably a more technical name for it, but that's the term the guy used. It's the housing on the front of the cylinder head that houses the thermostat but it also operates the shutters in front of the radiator. I'm told only the DG 8's with shutters had this on them and the cars with a grill panel in front of the radiator had a standard thermostat housing. I have the housing but no internal parts.

Was it also used on any other vehicles in the Chrysler family at that time ? Maybe literature from another model will have what you're looking for...

The 31 CG Chrysler Imperial or a CD8 perhaps.. ?

I think there is a fellow Dodge Brother on the AACA forum that goes by the screen name Gunsmoke that may have a DG8. Maybe send him a message to see if he can help out ?

Thanks for the help. Did a little research and judging from pictures I believe the unit on the Chrysler CD 8 is the same as mine. Thanks again !!
