That has nothing todo with what he said. He said if 75c on lower hose then the tstat will never open which is what I didnt understand. If you took out the inside of the stock tstat why would you put an in line one anywhere else but shortly after where the real one would be? The lower hose temperature isnt what causes the tstat to open or close, maybe an indication of if it is open or closed and anywhere in between but it doesnt open or close based on the lower hose temp which is what i read inhis comment.
