Thermostat question~

Does anyone know if I can use a thermostat other than LR for my '95 D-90?

I would go to NAPA or similar and do a cross reference in the parts book, the rover v8 is just a ~30 year old GM V8...

I have heard some Chevy ones will work, but they must have the jiggle pin that is in the rover ones, otherwise the system could airlock and over heat.

Just drill a burping hole in a domestic. Thing is you want to use the LR gasket to seal it in. So no real time saved.
