Can't believe it ( refrase - believe it ) my neighbor and i where looking for the engine bleeder valve due to the infamous vapor lock / no heat inside / engine over heat problem , when he knocked into the hose from the throttle body right below the bleeder and it cracked. I said no problem ill check the stealership and at worse the savage yard to replace. Lincoln only sells the complete assembly including hoses, thermostat housing and the plastic t-assembly that i need. Part # 8b502 from ford parts . Com ( $300 bucks ) since the 2 side " hoses " coming into the t-assembly are factory attached ( no clamps ) getting one from the salvage yard may only last for a little while if i can find one. Checked several aftermarket places and no help. Anyone come across this before ? See attachment.

I have seen new Aluminum thermostat housing kits for a Jag V8 for $80 on EBAY, you might check with the sellers to see if they got one for a V6.
