350 mcx thermostat
 
hi,can anyone tell me about the 350 mcx thermostats. when i replaced mine recently with a new 160 deg.. i noticed theres a fairly deep circular recess where the stat fits ? and i was wondering if the stat should have a sealing ring or something there ?? to stop water bypassing the stat?

There should be a black rubber ring around the largest diameter portion of the t-stat.

If you can't find the rubber gasket you can try this stuff ...

It's been a while since I looked at the MCX t-stat...but that seems to be what I recall.

I would go with the correct part over the permatex stuff.
