on my 99 CVPI, got a new thermostat, new "O" ring. installed the thermostat and it appeared from the old one it sat on top of the thermostat and the housing bolted down on top of that. did not seal. tried to wrap the "O" ring around the beveled edge of the bottom side of the thermostat housing, worse leak. It wasn't leaking before. What am I doing wrong?

Whelp, I guess now it's a never mind....went back out, looked down inside and it has some gunk on the lip where the thermostat sits and as I scraped it off, the lip broke or already was. So I took the "O" ring out, RTV'd the housing to the manifold, will leave overnite and hope it seals. If not, looks like I will be putting a manifold on.....yuck.
