I just realized that someone has put a steel sleeve into the housing so my new thermostst and retainer don't fit.  Does anyone know why it was previously done before I try to take it off.  Thanks.

Looks like a bubba hack of some sort. Did it have a thermostat in it?

No thermostat inside. Any suggestion how to remove that.  Looks press fit. Thanks

why on earth would someone do that when used housings are plentiful and new ones are cheap. cheaper than sleeving a part i'll wager.

It looks very well done. If Bubba did it, he has talent.
Maybe it's a Canadian thing.
Like the money they call a "Loonie".
It might be rare and valuable.

Bubba removed the thermostat from my first jeep and it got much better in the Tucson summer after I discovered it was missing and installed one. 

I wouldn’t think it would require that much talent to slide the right size pipe into a hole. If it’s glued in with bearing mount or JB weld it might take a lot of heat and force to break it loose. If it’s just slid in then I think heating the housing might let it slide out. It would help if only one part was steel. I would probably try cutting it out on the milling machine or just buy a replacement if one could be found.

Finally got the sleeve out by drilling it and pulling it out. First tries to cut it with a reciprocating saw without success.

perhaps a home made sleeve to hold the thermostat up where it is supposed to go?
