I'm not looking for the actual thermostat; I'm looking for the paper type gasket that fits between the thermostat housing and the intake, as well as the rubber thermostat that fits around the actual thermostat which recesses inside the intake. The person at the parts counter doesn't seem to know much and he can't even properly check the listings. The only other solution is to go through the 15 gaskets that are close to matching and physically pair them up. OR, find a different location to get my parts from. Although this location is very convenient.

The round rubber thing is called a thermostat seal. The paper one is thermostat gasket. I always ask for them by that name and they can look it up. The paper gasket is $0.99, and the rubber seal is $2.99, I think.

I thought I had an extra one of each lying around that I could look up the numbers off but can't find them.

Well I was just replacing my stat, and the gasket that I was given had an extra piece sticking out of the thermostat housing, and the o ring didn't fit in perfectley,The parts that i picked up were the right listed parts for my bonne, and there was a little bit of doubt but I'm guessing that the ring will expand under the extreme heat conditions, and as long as the gasket fits in place, i don't think its too critical.
