RIVA thermostat install.
Besides the RIVA instructions, Do you guys have any tips when doing this mod? Im also thinking of using Engine Ice when I put everything back together. Im in S. Florida and dont ever have freezing temps down here.

when you go to press the ring on the housing make sure it is straight and is not catching the edge of the housing or it will crack it.

is there a gasket between the thermo housing and the cases ?
Hoss are you suggesting I dont run a thermostat in there. Ive seen this done in cars

yes there is a reuseable rubber gasket in the housing.
use the thermo or put a restrictor in the housing, if you have no thermo in there it will flow too much water and the coolant will flow too fast through the rideplate and not get effectively cooled.

I DID IT WHAT A PAIN AND AND HAIRY CUTTING PRESSING IT DOESNT LOOK LIKE IT WOULD WORK BUT IT DID FINE ... AS SAID BEFORE... YOU DO NEED A PRESS AND MAKE SURE IT IS GOING IN STRAIGHT AND FLAT ..MINE COCKED AND TOOK A CHUNK OUT OF THE WATER PUMP HOUSING ... I SEALED IT AND IT WAS FINE BUT B CAREFUL .....WHY WOULDNT SEADOO JUST MAKE THE END SCREW SO YOU CAN CHANGE THE THERMO.... NNO THERMO GOES BAD REPLACE WATER PUMP FOR MEGA $$$ IN THAT WAS THE STUPIDEST DESIGN... BUT THEN MOST ENGINEERS DONT HAVE A LICK OF COMMON SENCE
