    ! is in the inlet end of the water pump, the other is behind the adapter housing on the top.

    Thanks that's a great start. but I was wondering if I need to replace the O ring after removing the inlet frm the water pump when I replace the thermostat?

    Whenever you remove a seal or gasket it is always a good idea to replace them.

    If you're doing one it will always be the other so do them both at the same time and be done.
