  • Stoopid thermostat installation question

    What's the sequence for installing a new thermostat? Is it Thermostat-Gasket-Water Neck or Gasket-Thermostat-Water Neck? I only ask because the water manifold opening is flat, but the water neck has a machined indent that the thermostat fits into perfectly.

    Duhhh.... [:I]

    Thermostat in the indentation so gasket to the joining surfaces are flat against each other.

      Yah .. the outer diameter of the T-stat should be less than the hole
      in the gasket (or there is a problem). Use Permatex No2 on each side
      of the gasket and you never have to worry about it leaking again. It
      only requires a thin application. Its worth it though. Use it on all
      water gasket applications.
