Any ideas on where you found the hex sockets? I couldn't find them at a couple places and could only find the 5/16" in a set. Any idea where to get them individually from a brick and mortar store?

?1. are you removing the thermostate from the housing so the heater core will get flushed?
I thought (coolant fuild up to 195 degrees) w/ the heater turned on the heater core gets flushed?
I've owned my TA since 01, flushed mine 4 times however never removed block plugs ?how much coolant fuild comes out these drain holes? and if this old fuild isn't drained will it containinate the new fuild?

There is a significant amount of coolant left if you don't remove the plugs. It's up to you but my a1st time I didn't want to remove the plugs and Pajeef02 told me to do it, sure enough there was left over coolant when i pulled the plugs. If you don't want to remove the plugs then i will at least suggest to flush it multiple times until almost no coolant is visible, that will be better than no flush at all.

yes I diffienty flush w/ clean water numurous times usalley 3 times doe's it.
I'm curious why reputable LS1 parts stores like Speed inc. ect only offer the thremostate w/ the housing for big $ now that I know how to dissassemble TS, I'm leaning toward the WS6 Stores TS only for much less.
However I don't think this TS only will work on my old housing note the differnces the old LS1 is metal around the edge where the newer style is black rubber.
I will most likly end up w/ a Autozone TS w/ housing for $30. that Bigdaddy suggested on my other TS thread.
are the TS housing O rings available as a single part?
