Always use a new gasket on the thermostat and you may need to bend the bolt hole "ears" up slightly so the gasket is compressed when the bolts are tightened down. That has worked for me in the past. There is a nice little kit available on ebay that should also help this problem (no all that cheap, but if it helps stop the leaking (which is very common on these) it's probably worth it. The one I linked to is stainless, but there is a slightly cheaper plain steel version available as well. Cheers!
