Ok....how do you know?

I only ask because I noticed a bit of fluid dripping from under the oil filter housing and I suspect the bypass pin may have been preventing a tight seal on the thermostat housing.

The last half inch was a tight fit ......... and I am not boasting about my manhood here.

Once the bolts were tight, the two surfaces appeared to be flush and I do not see any oil dripping from the thermostat housing, so I may just have a leak at the oil filter housing gasket coincidentally.
