[v12-engine] thermostat housing leak

Hi All,

finally found my coolant leak, it turned out to be a small hole in the
passenger side (US) thermostat housing right behind the fitting for the
crosspipe. there seems to be quite a bit of aluinum missing on the inside so
I’m not sure how long a weld would hold. anyone know the best source for
this piece? I’ll also need new top hat gromets for the coolant piles.

thanks all
