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.

legend in my own mind

Advice is only as good as the person applying it--
Don't make me give you bad advice!

Lemons or lemonaide, whatever your taste provides.
