Follow the top hose from the radiator to the engine. Where this hose clamps on the engine is the thermostat housing. There's 2 bolts that hold it on. Remove them, with the engine cold, and you'll see the thermostat. Pull the thermostat straight up and out. Remove any old gasket material. Install your new 195°F thermostat, pointy end up, then put some gasket sealer on the new gasket. Place the new gasket on then bolt the thermostat housing back on. The bolts should be tight but not super tight. Remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Top off the radiator and bleed any air out of the system. Fill the plastic recovery tank about half way. Once the engine is fully warmed up put the radiator cap back on and you'll be all set. HTH. -Jim
