Default 1995 F150 Thermostat

Well...

My timing cover is leaking in the area where it buts up against the block on the drivers side. I pulled it all off and am going to replace the thermostat while I am at it.


What temp thermostat do you all think I should get?

I am also thinking about replacing the timing cover with a new one. I don't see how it could be leaking being that I put a new gasket on less than 5 years ago.

What do you all think?

195 degree OEM temp - high flow, I like the Stant superstats read this - http://www.stant.com/Consumer-Produc...t--Thermostat/
this is the only T-Stat I use

you need a 195 degree - part # 45359 (195º) thats the OEM temp rating
options are 180 degree - my opinion too cold

talk to your engine builder, also the temp will be stamped on the old one, when you lower the operating temp other things start to happen on these newer engines with all them sensors, way back when we would not have to worry about the sensors and when racing we would take off the fan and take out the T-Stat.

PS: make sure you have good air flow and the fins arnt blocked and your fans are working I think you have electric
I put a black window screen behnd my grill to keep out bugs, leaves, grass and such

leaks happen, sometime too much sealer is no good and can cause the gasket to squeeze out
use black sealant

195. If you have a higher flow water pump, get the higher volume thermostat. Also, IIRC something like 1 in 5 thermostats are bad out of the box, so heat up some water on the stove and throw the thermostat in there. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature of the water to see when the thermostat opens.

stove top check is something nobody thinks about until they have to remove the newly installed t-stat

I went with a 190 tstat when I changed mine, I think the old one was a 180 maybe colder. Love it, warming the truck up in the cold winter morning is so much better.

I've heard the 195 degree Stant Thermostats are getting a bit hard to find, I had to buy a Murray thermostat when I replaced the thermostat in the 88. I know they are really scarce for the Scout as well.
