    Looking for a couple of new original thermostat bellows for a 68 Corvair...any suggestions? I see that Clark's has repros...are they any good. Have heard that most only last about 6-8 months? Thanks

    I installed a pair of Clark's repros on mine... one lasted about 6-8 months, the other is still fine after 5 years. smile image

    The thermostat is a temperature control device usually located in a housing attached to the upper radiator hose. hers how to replace it:
    1
    Open the hood and locate the vehicle's radiator.
    2
    Remove the vehicle's radiator cap and use a radiator pressure tester to check for leaks.
    3
    Drain out some of the engine coolant in the radiator so the coolant level is below the thermostat housing to prevent leaking when replacing the thermostat.
    4
    If necessary, remove the upper radiator hose.
    5
    Remove the thermostat housing bolts.
    6
    Remove the thermostat housing.
