That was going to be my guess. Hadn't heard them called that before.

That is what I was thinking too, but I also never heard them called that before.

Phak1 On those plug wires if you get a chunk of dirt in your main jet you can cross 3 and 4 and it will blow the dirt out so you can get home !

Thermostat choice is dictated somewhat by climate and intended use. I live in SLC, Utah which has four seasons and 100 degree summer days. I don’t drive my truck much in the winter but do in good weather. I had a 180 deg. at first which ran too hot in summer. Now I run a 160 deg. which does not leave me wondering if it is going to boil over in traffic or leave a puddle when I park it.

I defaulted to a 180.
I have heard 160s may not allow coolant to remain in the radiator long enough to effectively disipate heat.
I'll see what happens.
Thanks.
