Don't forget to dip the bolts in some grease before put them back in housing, just in case you have to take it off again. :ugeek:

I will change the bolts when I replace the coolant this week I was in a hurry to change the water pump housing for the weekend so only refilled with softened water. I might buy a couple of those stats for spares too. Looks like there is a range of opening temps too.

That is FC thermostat in the picture. They have rubber ring and location to fit it in the housing.

Not at this point. Depends if it's a stock photo or not.

You can always rip the rubber piece off anyway. You shouldn't use that on an FB.
