Joe, that's a good trick. If I have a housing that looks like it won't crack before 50k, I'll try that.

As for thermostats, if they are 90% good, it might take you a while to find a bad one. We go through a bunch of them, as we are the ones that say,"Just because your temp gauge says 190 doesn't mean it IS 190...". So, we replace a lot of thermostats. And most of them are OEM. Eventually, even a 'good one' goes bad.

Honestly, with relatively new common rails, we saw plenty that were overheating. Of course, the temp gauge said everything was ok. I wonder why they have to make a different thermostat. They do the same exact thing...
