im going to replace my thermostats as soon as this damn snow is gone. i got the thermostats and gaskets but i can't find any torque values. looks like the housings are made out of aluminum and im afraid if i overtighten them i might crack one. my seloc manual says to "tighten the bolts snugly" anybody have any idea where i might find the torque value or what it might be? thanks

ezbite,
I may have to start charging for merc questions:D My 2001 service manual says torque thermostat bolts to 200 lb-in, or, 16.5 lb-ft, or, 22.5 Nm. You should really consider getting a merc service manual for that engine. You can find great buys on e-bay. My last two I got for about $18 apiece (they're about $79 on the Mercury Parts Express site).
