sickofit Its common for the plastic housing on the thermostat to get hot and slightly warp over time.You can either buy a new housing or people have had good luck putting sandpaper on a perfectly flat surface and sand slightly until flat again.

Scotscockney From your pictures......maybe coolant pipe has perished abit,these 660's are getting old(like me).Original rubbers don't last forever,hopefully a couple of the long termers will be on at some point and maybe have better idea

Glockative How do I check the best way of everything that I need to change? I’m new to this so was gonna change the hose clamps thermostat housing, thermostat, and the plastic cover. Was gonna do everything. So I might not need everything? Best way to tell is how? And what do you mean by bleed it. Is that after I’m done working on it and put more fluid?

I think you need a few more posts before you’re allowed to attach images. Could you just be having a leak from a loose hose clamp?

Replacing upper radiator hose is very simple, just messy.
Make sure to bleed air out of system through the bolt with crush washer on the thermostat housing.
