Yes there is a O ring for the thermostat housing but I wouldn't reuse the old housing. They usually won't seal the second time. They are made out of cheap stamped metal and a new one is $18 from Powerstrokeshop.com. If you are reusing the stock I would add some RTV to help it seal!! I also don't use the O ring that comes with the Water Pump, I found the one from Ford is a bit thicker and seals better.
