Perfect. This'll get me going. I may even have it done before soccer practice at 10am. Thansk again All!
Job done. No leaks. Took all of 20 minutes. Tested part in hot water with my 5 year old before installing. Made a good physics lesson. Temp gauge hovers just above 80c (as the spec on the part is 87c, this seems perfect.) Old one was stuck in there, but appeared to be closed from the top at stone cold. Had to pull out with pliers and broke on the way out so I cannot know for sure if it was broken. Though, there was a piece of rubber caught in the springs -- suspect this moved through from when I replaced my monovalve not too long ago.
