I'm not out of the clear yet tho,it took almost a half hour to dig that old t stat out of there and clean up the block where it sits.

BTW I was first sold a t stat that didn't have the rubber grommet attached, they claimed at crappy tire that I only needed the gasket which of course was extra, I ended up buying it because I hadn't yet removed the t stat,anyways I ended up going to NAPA a day later and had them check the part,It was indeed supposed to have the rubber grommet,so I grabbed a t stat from them and they even thru in a metric bolt for me to replace the one that broke.
