Drill 1/8 hole in thermostat

The other day I had a thread about water temp going up and down, someone said to drill 1/8 inch hole in thermostat, where do you drill the hole in the thermostat ? I have purchased a 160 degree thermostat from Mr Gasket , and looking at it can't tell where the hole is drilled , the Mr Gasket thermostat does not look like your ordinary thermostat .

THANKS FAT40

A stock Mr. Gasket thermostat.



My Speedway thermostat has 3 holes drilled in it, as shown in the pic.

it just goes off near the edge so that water can continualy flow and any air bubbles amek it to the radiator, instead of being caught in the block / heads

if theres not enough room to drill a hole, instead just use some tin snips to remove some of one edge


edit: now that you posted pics, just use the tinsnips idea, lol
