143 or 160 Degree Thermostat?

1990 Indmar 351...

Which Thermostat should I be using, the 143 or the 160?

Also, is there an o-ring that goes around the thermostat, or is it just the gasket?

It's a marine distributor, there's no vacuum advance.
I know there shouldn't be advance at those RPMs, I think the theory was it could possibly be advancing too soon because the springs weren't right.
