Re: correct thermostat

The correct thermostat for a cleveland is the Dayco unit with a part number of DT66A. Go to your local spare parts store, but specify the Dayco unit. You'll should pay about $20 for it.

Re: correct thermostat

Is the DAYCO one shown the high flow unit?, and I think Repco tried to charge me $35 odd for it.

First to shown look like possibly the standard 302 & 351 units. Obviously the bigger opening being the 351. I'm kinda guessing though.

Re: correct thermostat

The top one would flow more than the bottom one. Does it fit into the thermostat housing ok? It looks quite different to a high flow dayco thermostat though, but could be just design???
