Re: Volvo md7a overheating, temperature fluctuating

Mechanically there should be a number of thermostats that fit the opening. I believe it’s rather standard, the only thing “special” is the operating temperature which is 150-160°F, something like that.

For “hook up” you remove the thermostat housing (2 bolts), take the old one out and put the new one in its place.
