It is in there.... about enough to put the sensing spring into the center of the head outlet....I am going to use 2 hose clamps on the end holding the thermostat...One on the head outlet ,one the front of the thermostat This had the dirtiest oil in it I have ever seen.....(No thermostat).Now I hope for better looking plugs and less sludge....Thanks people and will let you know how this little outfit works...Charlie

Y'all should look for some steel cable ties are some for rack and pinion dust boots... I don't trust those plastic ones for the long haul... Before I would use plastic I would use a worm drive hose clamp custom cut to length by me...

Dielectric compound grease is the best rubber lube around... That and a pipe will push that stat home....

Tip,,, when using a worm drive hose clamp apply a drop of oil to the screw...

My Thermostat is only 2 1/4 " into the hose right above the outlet of the head...Will it work?

grease it and slide it in. you want it to stay close to the head side anyway. most put a ziptie or band clamp on it around the center to hold it in place..

It will go in; I've got 4 8N's, all w/ 180* t-stats. As soundguy said, put a little grease on it.

Make sure you put it in pointing in the correct direction. Look for the heat sensor. On the A-11C15 180* t-stat, the flat end goes toward the radiator which is opposite of how the typical 160* t-stat is installed.
