Minor Thermostat Leak Fixed

When fitting the 1.8 diesel thermostat I installed it with the rubber gasket that came with it.  Unfortunately this is slighly thinner than the Zetec petrol thetmostat gasket, and as such I had a small coolant leak from the thermostat housing.

I've taken it all apart again and fitted the original petrol thermostat gasket to the diesel thermostat.  Just been for a test run and no more leak.  Coolant temperature still fixed steady at 88 degrees.  Finally happy.
