I just did my T-stat last weekend. The copper anti size is good stuff. It also helps lubricate the threads so assembly is easier.

I had "too cold" on cool days, and "too hot" on warm days. During a 4 hour drive yesterday in 90 temperature, I could see the oil temp needle move sightly up and down in the middle of the scale as the t-stat opened and closed.

I undid one line at a time and re-snugged them. I was worried about distorting the lines making reassembly a real pain. Hard brake lines are no fun when they're distorted and I figured this would be infinitely worse. Worked like a champ, only slight distortion.
