If it's a 4 cylinder- (Just did one yesterday) Disconnect negative battery cable Remove air duct that runs from air filter to engine (remove elec connector 1st) Get PCV hose that runs there out of the way ( breaking one end loose and just twisting works) Remove 4 bolts that hold ignition distributor (where all the plug wires go together) and tape it, or wire tie it out of the way Remove ignition distributor mounting bracket from cylinder head. (3 bolts 8mm?) Look down.There's the thermostat housing. Three bolts (a 1/4 inch drive ratchet with a small extension will help to access the bottom bolt, some brilliant Ford engineer buried it as a joke. The thermostat lives in the housing. Remove it, clean it out, and put the new one in facing the same direction making sure that you don't pinch the seal on installation. Clean the old gasket material and adhesive off carefully from both surfaces, glue the gasket on, and reassemble. (I dropped by the hardware store and picked up new bolts and they went in really well compared to the corroded old ones. I had a 65 Mustang that I could replace a thermostat in about seven minutes...
