I hate to be contrary, but if he has the thermo installed, the cold position is with flaps CLOSED. When the thermo expands at 160? degrees (I forget the exact number), the flaps are opened to increase air flow over cylinders.

When you refer to the failed position, you mean without the thermo connected and the wire is loose - in which case you are correct (since the spring on the linkage forces them open).

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
