    Ok here is my fix for the thermoster replacements.
    I used 2 old thermosters and gutted them. Then I got a 90° hydraulic fitting and cut off the threads. I also got 2 12mx1 nuts. And welded the pieces together. The gutted thermosters act as plugs and the nuts are to put new thermosters in, I also added some heat transfer paste in the fittings. Lastly I plan on heatshrinking the fittings and adding some pipe insulation over that. So now when I change out the thermosters I don't need to vac and refill the system..

    Thanks I was frustrated that you needed to recover and vac the system out to change the thermosters. And I ended up with a couple of bad sets. So I figured it out.
    I just love mods.....

    Update I vacuumed it down and gassed it up and she is ice cold.
    I also have a 12 volt ball valve for a heater control valve.
