How do you replace the thermostat in a 1997 dodge 3500 ram diesel engine?

Follow the hose that comes out the top of the radiator, remove the hose where it clamps on to the engine and the small hose next to it. Remove the top bolt from the altinator and there are 3 or 4 bolts on the peice the hose hooked to that you need to take out. Pull that peice off and your thermostat is inside it, replace it and put every thing back together.
