Default 180* question..

Are the 180* thermostats the same for series 1 and series 2 L67 and series 2 L36? I have a chance of getting one from a series 2 L67 and need to know if it'll fit in either of my cars.

the new spiffy ones that are supposed to fail into the open position if they do fail are like 6 bucks.

I believe that they are all 44 mm ... And you have your choice of 195 or 180... The stants around here seem to run about $8 or so... Both of my cars usually run at 180-182 with the 180 F thermostats... But I'm NA'd so thats not a great comparision...lol

They are cheap enough anywhere to buy them new. I got mine at autozone for 7 bucks.

Think about time and gaskets if it fails quickly...
