The new t stat doesn't have to go in a certain way does it? Working on it right now but this rubber gasket is giving me a tough time lol

Oh and Sean, my HEMI t stat had that hole as well

The only critical part about the new t-stat install is the direction it faces. If you install it upside down it will be a problem. My stock stat was stuck pretty good, but I just took a small screwdriver and pried it up (from the center part, not the edge where the gasket is).

Which stat did you buy? I bought mine from Jet because I've always had good luck with them. Mine came with a new gasket too. It slid right in place. I had the entire job done in less than 3 mins.

I believe that hole is there to prevent cavitation from air and to allow the air to escape.
