have you ever had one of those embarrassing moments where you realize you reallllly screwed up? This will be one of those...
Apparently, I should have called it a day before tackling the coolant flush, as I had been working on the truck all day and it was getting late... but, I was already nasty, and figured I would enjoy the next day off.
Anyway, yeah, the thermostat housing wasn't too big for the thermostat... the hose below the thermostat housing, however, is.
As you can see, the T-stat is on the top right, my new t-stat is sitting in the opening below that
So, now that I've put about 300 miles on it that way, what all have I potentially screwed up? Ultimately, it would nice if it were nothing, and the leak would disappear after correcting this fiasco, but with my luck... that is probably not the case
