IMO the purpose of a thermostat is to keep coolant in the radiator long enough for it to dissipate the heat. I run a hotter thermostat and it keeps my engine cooler. If the upper o-ring was missing it could potentially rattle around and let coolant past before it has a chance to cool. It would be a restriction either way and probably wouldn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

I did, based on visual observations of the last couple of blocks I was inside, and was adding and amplifying on your comment about the flow being less in the rear of the block's water jacket.

What Ige said. Basically, you don't want the muriatic acid anywhere near anything aluminum, such as the t-stat housing, it'll eat it up. But cast iron like the block, head or F water pump housing won't care.

Ige forgot a major part! First you need to buy an all original '64 40 that hasn't run in 25 years but fired right up and even had brakes. Then after the whole flushing process, you leave nice clean water in the block the ONE DAY IT GOT COLD ENOUGH TO FREEZE SOLID!!

At least that is my experience when I cracked the block in two.
