    thermostat installation

    just because im confused and can never find out how it goes, im going to post it here for everybody. The thermostat goes in first BEFORE the plastic cup and the spring side will face TOWARDS the water pump as shown below.



    then the plastic cup will be installed over it. the cup will have a small nipple on it the will fit into a notch on the housing at 6 o'clock.

    Hope this helps

    I wish I knew this last year. I finally got it figured out, not too long ago. The funny thing is, I took it to a few shops and they didnt know how it went in as well. Good stuff.

    Ive been meaning to do this since I have over 185,000 miles on my engine and it was prob never replaced by the PO....though it runs like a champ since I've replaced my fan motor without any cooling issues.
    whats the easiest way to get to it? i have a header back there and that does not look like an easy approach (O.o)

    it should be much easier with a heade than with the stock manifold. i just use a 10mm combo wrench.

    This. I have enough room under my Pacesetter to pop off the pipe between the therm housing and pump housing. Little bit of a tight squeeze, I just use a ratcheting wrench.
