    Hello F-Chatters,

    I have a stupid question: I'm installing a new thermostat ang I'm wondering where the "O" ring gets placed, under the thermostat, or on top of it (w/the thermo housing on it)? Please advise...

    Thanks, Chris

    the o-ring goes on top of the t-stat. Be sure the o-ring is not of the style that wraps around the outer rim of the stat. so it's sort of half on the bottom and half on the top with the stat in a recess in the center of the o-ring. If it is then you know what to do.

    Tom what is wrong with the 0-ring that goes around the thermostat? Does it leak or ?. I have seen many 308s with the ring going around the theromstat. Thanks.
