REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
- Partially drain the cooling system.
- Unless the upper radiator hose is positioned over one of the thermostat housing (water outlet) bolts, it is not necessary to detach the hose.
- Remove the bolts and remove the water outlet.
- When installing a new thermostat always use a new gasket. Be sure that the thermostat is positioned with the spring down. The factory recommended thermostat temperature is 180° for all engines.
