Re: truck runs cold

Fear not Fordnut, there is help available

in the form of a special 205 degree t-stat available from Stant, a division of Gates. It's Stant part number 13352. I made the mistake of telling my counter guy that I wanted a 205 and he said "uh uh, no such animal" . I went to the stant website and they fixed me up with the right number. I went back to the counter guy and said "got a 13352 ?" and he said "yes we've got 4, what is it ?. I said "just go get it and see".

Bottom line, my 302 EFI 86 is toasty up here in the Great White North.

Find a parts guy that carries Stant t-stats and get one.

Re: truck runs cold

Also you might make sure you're cooling system is full. Mine would do that when it got low, and I finally realized i had a leak.

It's a Jeep thing? My Bronco thing will run over your little Jeep thing.
