Believe 1/2 of what you read in Hayes.

Stock thermostat for T-IV is 85-90 degree. Usually when they go bad they expand. Expanding the thermostat opens the dampers on the fan. This is good because an expanded thermo. or a broken cable opens the flaps to allow maximum air flow.

On an carb. model, it takes longer to warm up and on FI it will run but use more gas... Always run a thermostat, it keeps the engine at the best temp. for poerformance. Good luck.
