Re: Yet another heat issue

I never had any issues with my 195* duralast tstat. If you're having issues with keeping the tstat in place when mounting the housing, you can apply a thin layer of rtv to the tstat and mount it on the inset part of the housing or the head (I forget which side has that right now). Just be careful to not block the weep hole in the tstat and use as little as you have to just to make sure it doesn't move. And if the housing isn't flush before you tighten the bolts, the tstat isn't in the right place and you need to restart from step one.
