Now I am understanding! :-) hehe

According to the 'service and repair manual' the thermostat gasket should be replaced whenever the thermostat is removed.

Is this a precautionary measure or must it be done?

I assume the gasket is only a few dollars so I had might as well replace it anyway.

Ha ha l posted a thread on this a few weeks back as l removed the thermastat and didnt have a gasket so l used clear silicon instead. I was concerned it would leak but now it is 100 times better than the crappy paper gasket that had a small leak before.
