Haven't found a cross reference on the forum for a 1200; only for an 1100. Anyone know if the NAPA101 for the 1100 will fit on my '87 1200?

I got mine from the auto store, just compared the size and the temp rating to match. When I went to install it it was about 0.3mm too large to fit, but one turn around the flange on the grinder and she was a perfect fit.
OEM was around $58.00 plus wait for a week or more, the auto parts store was about $5.50 and 10 minutes.

Using that cross reference number gives me a thermostat that is too large, as is the OEM o-ring. Gonna check the motor serial number to see if a different motor was installed...

Found a stat at NAPA that fits and meets temp specs BUT how in the world do you keep the stat from slipping down in the housing lip while you tighten the cover?

A little dab of axle grease works wonders in keeping the stat and O-ring in place as you assemble them.
