    Thermostat is missing from the list too.

    TS = Thermostat
    TB = Throttle Body

    Just making sure, I placed the order according to this post - a huge help - but pictured in the Workshop Manual (#7) part W707299 says 2 required and shows from Thermostat housing to engine, the 2 o-rings and says 2 required. Is this a typo in the manual for the part number? or are those the 96JV-8255-CB. Maybe in too much of a hurry, and thanks for this post and all the help found here!!! PART(S) W707299-S300.PNG

    You want 2 Motorcraft RG-619 for the crossover to the heads... and one Motorcraft RG-608 if pulling the front of the thermostat housing to replace the thermostat.

    You also want 1 Ford W707299S300. This is the large O-ring that goes between the crossover and the gooseneck, (elbow), that bolts to the block This O-ring actually fits on the gooseneck.

    All bolts in this area are torqued to 89 INCH- pounds.

    Total cost for all o-rings/gaskets should be around $30.

    Got it, 2 of the 37mm ones. It gets a bit confusing with part #"s and when PartsGiant says doesn't know if RG # will fit the vehicle, but longer p/n will. Thanks, and i will bump this again if i add a copy of the parts list. Only $1k including pump, aux pump and dccv, and not looking forward to the job itself either. It'a be worth it, Thanks for the info 04!

    I just ordered and installed these parts about a month ago. The W707299S300 that goes on the gooseneck... was leaking. I ordered all Ford parts from the dealer... and the 37mm and 54mm were the Motorcraft "RG" parts mentioned.
