it is under the thermostat housing on the engine block where the upper rad hose enters the engine. Go with a 180 degree unit, don't fool around with the original 195 units. 160 is to cold for this engine.

Thank u so much for the help. 6 months ago my mother and I discussed to take a leap of faith and became full time RVers... Sense then I spend all day fixing what my mom breaks at night lol just kidding... But have had to do many repairs in the six months as I'm sure I will continually have to do. I'm gonna open that big boy up again in a few and if I get stuck again I'll take some pictures...

Welcome to the wonderful world of class A moho's. No matter if it is a $200k DP or 1973 Winnie brave, there will be constant repairs to keep it in "living" shape.

I am learning it fast BwahahH I was surprised when I replaced the converter and that whole mess and my friend had told me... That's one of the easiest fixes u can do and that's when I know I was in for a ride.

Im lost!!!!

Sooooo.... Needless to say I'm kinda stuck... Super confused because I've replaced two different thermostats in cars and you can usually see the housing right from the get. With the I can not see any recognizable factors.... I know I'm probably just overlooking something but once again any pointers would be welcomed.

Look at the rad hose just in front of the air cleaner.. most Chev's had the top rad hose go to the thermostat housing..
Pull the air cleaner off and look for the housing.
