ok, so here's the deal, I went to the parts store and bought a new thermostat so i could replace the old one. well, i started on it tonight, got the old one out and was gettin ready to put the new one in til i realized they dont look anything alike. The diameter of them is the same and it seems that the new one will fit in the thermo housing, but the spring assembly itself is so much smaller then the one i took out, and its too late to go back to the store cuz they are closed.
Has anyone ever come across this? will the new one i bought work still?
i will put pics of the new and old one up in just a second.
thanks in advance for any info/help.
