    thermostat gasket

    the thermostat that was in the engine had a gasket around the end of the thermostat against the water neck.the replacement oreilly sold me goes around the outside of the flange.which is the correct one?i also got the o ring for the water neck.btw ive never seen a radiator petcock in a worse place.i broke a vacumn line from the transmission modulater trying to reach it.

    Cell Phone Mount Help

    i took out the dead tape player and took a piece of lexan painted black on the back to give it a mirrored look and mounted a phone mount and usb port on it.it can be removed and the tape player put back in and be origional.i hooked a bluetooth module to the tape player wires so my phone hooks to the radio wirelessly.

    Engine Choices

    id at least pull off the oil pan and check the condition on the main bearings.then install new pan gasket.when you install a 'new' engine you want it to be trouble free for at least a year.

    Update on the Red/Tan 1989 Parts car

    id suggest a bluetooth module tied into the wires from the tape player.thats what i have and it can look stock if you don't add the phone mount and usb port like i did.

    Engine Choices

    it seems to me that the freeze plugs would so easy to change then....changing the rear seal [and all the main bearings]might be a good idea.valve cover gaskets too.also the transmission torque converter seal.
