I knew there wasn't a thermostat in the Bonnie when I bought it. No biggie.
So I take the housing off and find this:
if the pic doesn't work, copy and paste.
Anyhow, someone went through the trouble of removing the stat and cutting the center out. Funniest of all, they used a power tool to cut it, I can tell by the cuts.
In the mean time I flushed the coolant system, changed engine and tranny oil, replace windshield wiper blades, put conditioner on the leather and so on.
I need to replace the oil pan gasket. Does the engine need to be lifted in order to swap the gasket?
