Try to install a thermostat in a 1990 Dodge van 318 with AC,Stamped steel themostat houseing. I hope someday they go back to building the 65 Chevy Malibu with the 327 engine. I wil be at the factory waiting on the first one off the line.

I had a couple of 283 and one 396 and one 409. I thought they would nearly fly.

My brother got a new GTX in 68 or 69 with a 383 automatic that would go past them Chibbies like we were'nt even racing.

Took awhile for me to catch on that I needed a Super Bee 440 with 3 dueces.

Just before attempt number 4.I called upon a Jew in Chicago to say a prayer for my efforts then i got it back on with no leak.But with the Chevy I never needed that kind of assistance.They are cast iron and are out in the open where you can see the bolts. I remember a Dodge pickup not long ago I had this same trouble.The ears of the flange pulls down before the gasket can seal.They think of every cost cutting method to save the money and make the owners job more trouble.

i learned early on to stay away from dodge and ford products.chevy rules, well at least they can be worked on with out a shop full of a quater millon dollars worth of tools.

yeah they get my goat with all the plastic they use on all brands nowadays.

Radiator was leaking on my dotters car so I told her to bring it by here and I'd solder it for her. When I popped the hood the top and bottom tank are both plastic.

Worked out okay I used a hot glue gun on it but that's pitful inginearin to me.

if you don't mind use one of them plastic caps from WalMart. They don't weigh enough to hurt much.
