    BT7 thermostat gasket

    also going thru gaskets today to see hwat i have and don't have. the gasket for the thermostat looks like just a round seal. i am used to seeing ones that come out around the studs. is this normal? Came in a Moss kit. or does someone else make a gasket that covers more?

    There's a thin, circular paper gasket that's supposed to go under the thermostat lip. Usually dissolves in a couple weeks.
