Hey All
.
Here is a new project I’ve been working on. I have been pleased with the results and it is working for me with no codes, I can use some help with the testing,
.
Stock Titan thermostat converted to 160* and runs around 176*
.
Parts
.
1) Stant 29356 160*F / 71*C Thermostat
2) 16mm or 5/8” stainless steel washer ( I like the 16mm washer because the o.d. size is smaller.)
3) A stock Thermostat
.
.
Remove the ring clip retaining washer and top spring
Now is time to be creative. I used a flat screw driver and a needle nose vice-grip and worked the end of the main spring up and around the thermostat housing and unscrewed the spring. Do the same thing on the new Stant 29356 Thermostat After disassembling the rest of the stock thermostat and cleaning all the parts. It is now time to put it all back together with the new stainless steel washer and the new spring off the 29356 thermostat.

Thanks for the help

There are a couple of 170* stats available for the Titan, but THEY DO NOT COOL PROPERLY. Stay away from the Stant and Murray branded ones. They work ok in cool weather, but your temps will skyrocket when it gets hot outside.

That being said, this mod WORKS. I've been using it and monitoring my temps, and this cools significantly better than the stock stat regardless of outside temperature.

Thanks, Thrust!!
