the t stat is right behind that black piece the circle one...that the black hose from the top right of the radiator goes into...all you do is remove 2 screws and pull it off...and then pull the old t stat out...if thats what you lookin for......

Yup, if you look at the RED SC cover, it is just off the point of the lower right corner of it. It has 2 bolts on either side to hold it down and a bleeder typs screw on the top onf the dome...can't miss it.

Also double-check with them that you do not need an O-ring too. Someone may be more familiar with the 96.

Good point! Us series 1 guys are spoiled with being able to see our engines. Also, since you aren't supercharged the reference points may not be there either. It should still be in roughly the same place. As you can see in the picture---> just follow the hose leaving the uper drivers side of the radiator and it will lead you right to it.
