    Thermostat

    I believe we are saying the same thing in a slightly different way. It's import to bypass during warmup - the NAPA/Mopar/Stant stat's lack of a bypass disc doesn't prevent the bypass flow - when the stat is closed, the bypass is open, and fulfills it's primary function of circulating a trickle coolant through the head. The engineers should have made the rear freeze plug divert as well, but that's easily fixed. On my setup, I divert the stagnant #5 & #6 coolant to my heater core inlet via a Keating Machine tapped freeze plug insert. When towing, and the stat opens to regulate temperature, the bypass closes - this doesn't really cut down flow through the upper rad hose; I've heat gunned the difference back to back on the same day before & after the stats opened. The tiny bypass doesn't really have a chance at affecting a fully open stat's monster flow that these very stout water pumps facilitate.

    Thermostat

    Never did find a warmer than 180f stat for my 12v first gen, so I swapped in a second gen stat housing and use the appropriate stat. Here ya go - 1st gen 12v - 180f 54mm diameter stat (has a tapered seat bypass & 2 jiggle pins) Cummins p/n 5292738. 2nd gen 12v - 180f 63mm diameter stat (has a disc bypass & no jiggle pins- uses the one way check valve to purge air) Cummins p/n 3928499/Mopar 05014568AA. 2nd gen 24v - 190f 58mm diameter with disc bypass (I initially ground this down to 54mm for my first gen but it's too deep to fit inside the 12v head) Cummins p/n 3946849/Mopar 05015708AC. I use a 63mm NOS Mopar # 3418459 in my second gen stat housing, its 195f, and is identical to the Cummins second gen stat in weight & construction, except that is doesn't have the bypass disc or bypass tapered seat. It's commonly available replacement is NAPA 532090/Stant 13479. I'm not concerned about the bypass function, as its only there to close & prevent flow through the bypass passage when the thermostat is open & provide 100% flow through the rad hoses. The bypass hole is too small to make a difference to cooling flow whether closed or open; its primary function is to ensure a bit of coolant circulation when the thermostat is closed, to help avoid hot spots while warming up.
