The OE t'stat was an 88 degree unit, but if you want, put in an 82 degree unit an drop the rad cap pressure from 15 psi to 13 psi. That makes the radiators last longer, stops them getting the split happening at the end tank seams.

I think this is the answer the guy wanted.

But anyway, my old Ghia used to exactly bang on half way (digital dash).
