    Riva Thermostat kit

    Jerry,

    Is it required for the hydralic press to change out the thermo?

    I wish i saw the rotax setup as one unit cus i might have just gotten that instead....

    I'm pretty sure that the rotax set up is a complete thermo bolt on and go. So it would be easier.

    Yes, you need the press for the Riva kit.

    When I had my Riva Thermostat it leaked after the metal snout was pressed on , So I got the Rotax much better

    Anybody ever use "water wetter" or similar product? does it work?

    I use the water wetter with distilled water. The only problem is you have to drain the system during the winter since you have no anti-frezze.

    I used a solder stick (like $20 at home depot). Just use the flat adapter piece and burn the tab off !

    Replaced it with a 158 mercury thermostat, epoxy back and walla. $40 thermostat kit.
