Replacing t-stat in 7.5L Ford--need gasket?

Post by Intelliduner » Fri Feb 04, 2011 11:39 am

I have a Class C based on a '93 Ford E350 van with the 7.5L (460ci). I want to replace the stat because I suspect it's stuck open--it runs really REALLY cold and I've heard that Fords of that era had a run of sticky stats.

Anyway, does anyone know if this requires a new gasket? Some engines have re-usable gaskets. Also, does it require using any kind of sealant in addition to (or instead of) the gasket?
