its right on top of your engine in front of and to right of the valve cover. follow your top radiator hose to the engine. remove the 2 bolts, remove th old tstat. install the new one and bolt it back up. be sure and use the new seal that come with the new tstat. all done.

Only install a 190 T-stat and you should go with either a Cummins $$ or a NAPA Gold.

You ECM will be constantly trying to get to 190, and over fueling your engine. Diesels like the warm. Try changing to a 190 and see it your mileage improves.

I read that and switched to a 190, no difference. Hand calculated.

I figure having a 180* when it's 100* here can't hurt. Let's it open up that much sooner and then when I shut it down it's not gonna keep heating up above 190*
