JD.... I had to double gasket the T-stst housing after trueing mine. When you plain down the sealing surface, the recessed area where the T-stat sits is also reduced. I found on mine that the T-stat sat higher than the recessed area causing the non-seal problem. I used two gaskets to seal mine. The gasket which mates up to the T-stat housing was opened up so that the T-stat would pass through the gasket and the second gasket was left alone. I bonded the two gaskets together and then applied a thin coat of RTV sealant to their surfaces. I let the RTV dry overnight and then assemblied the entire unit. No more T-stat housing leak:D

Good luck!

lay a sheet of sandpaper on a glass surface or table .grab the housing and sand it down until all of the sealing surface is shiny .
