be careful tightening them down too, they snap easy, ive done it. i replaced mine it took about an hour, just clean them up real good too, all mating surfaces.

ok thanks, ill probably just go ahead and replace them, they look pretty crudy anyway, 23 yr old engine, they've probably never been replaced, it will at least give me piece of mind like why i changed my thermostat
