Default Thermostat going Bad

Hi all, i just installed a factory 195 deg. thermostat this afternoon. I did look at Intense for their thermostat and decided I could not wait on shipping. Anyway much to my suprise the factory thermostat is almost identical in construction except it is 195 deg.*. It also has an air bleed built in. Thought you all might find that interesting. By the way my Bonne was not heating up above 140 Degs.

yes, the 195 & 180 thermostats are virtually identical except for the labeling on them.

I have purchased two thermostats from Intense IIRC. One was a motorad 180 (specified 180 at time of purchase), and the other was a Stant.
Canadian Tire up here has Motorad, as does Autozone/Advance I am sure. Saves a few bucks on shipping when you can get small pieces like that locally. Only reason I got them from Intense was they fit in nicely with two larger orders I placed at those times.
