Yes, that's the plan.

I noticed AF on the short hose just below the tstat housing. I hope it got there from the leak above! If not, it looks like that other housing will have to come off.

EPC shows a screw in plug on the part of the thermostat housing that bolts to the block. Is that a good place to vent when re-filling?
