I gave up. i coulndt find a thermosatat housing for a modern LS that rotated 360, so i made one pointing down. I saw a plate on ebat that adapted LS to old school snmall blocj tstat housing but added 3/8" clearance. Had to clear the firewall and the fuel filler so this is about the only orinetation i saw working. Short of spinning it 180 deg and threading it through the belts! Hadn't used 22.5 deg angles since trimming my crown mould...
