The Stant Part #'* for 16LB Cap is #11231
180 degree Thermo(which most people here recommend) is #45848
I'm not sure about this but you may(should?) replace the Thermostat gasket if one exists.

is that thermostat the same one that can be used in the 93? I've been thinking about switing mine over.

Same one. For the 93 and 97, you also need the fiber outlet housing gasket, and the rubber seal around the thermostat flange.
