Try a salvage yard, or an automobile radiator repair shop. They should definitely be able to point you in the right direction if they don't have one to sell you.

You need to google it and do some searching in after market dealers and parts sales. If you go to any car shows, find someone who has a restored mustang and they will point you in the right direction.

To install:

NOTE To prevent installing the thermostat with an incorrect orientation, the housing contains a positioning slot. Install the thermostat so that the bridge part protrudes into the housing, not into the intake manifold.
  1. Position the thermostat and a new O-ring on the housing, then install the housing.
  2. Install the two mounting bolts, and alternately tighten them to:
    1. 4.6L SOHC engines 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
    2. 4.6L DOHC engines 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).

  3. Connect the lower radiator hose, the return hose and the degas bottle hose to the housing.
  4. Fill the cooling system, then start the engine and check for leaks.
  5. If necessary, top off the cooling system overflow reservoir.

  1. Drain the engine cooling system.
  2. Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe.
  3. Remove the 2 thermostat housing bolts and separate the lower and upper thermostat housings.
    1. Discard the thermostat O-ring seal and remove the thermostat.


To install:

NOTE Lubricate the O-ring seal with clean engine coolant.
  1. Install a new thermostat with the smaller plate facing upward and the O-ring seal.
  2. Position the lower and upper thermostat housings together and install the 2 bolts. Tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).

How to put a thermostat in a 89 mustang


The thermostat is under the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine.

Remove some coolant from radiator so the level is lower than the thermostat. Remove the upper radiator hose. Remove the 2 bolts holding down the housing. Take note of how the thermostat is in the housing so you can put it back the same way. You didn't say which engine you have and it's different for some of the engines. Clean area and use new gasket with RTV sealant on both sides of the gasket. If there is a rubber o-ring replace with a new one. Put in new thermostat and reassemble. Refill coolant and done.

Need instructions for replacing thermostat on a 2001 Grand Cherokee 4.7 litre


Do not loosen radiator drain **** with system hot and pressurized. Serious burns from coolant can occur.

NOTE Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. If thermostat is being replaced, be sure that replacement is specified thermostat for vehicle model and engine type.
Instructions

  1. Locate the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing by following the top radiator hose to the engine. The hose connects to the thermostat intake. A second, smaller hose connects to the left side of the radiator hose. This is a bypass hose for the heater.
  2. Remove the two bolts that secure the Cherokee's thermostat intake housing to the engine with a socket and ratchet and lift the intake upward to drain the coolant in the hose back into the radiator.
  3. Remove the gasket and the thermostat from the engine and discard them. Wipe the mating surfaces of the thermostat intake housing and the engine off with a clean towel.
  4. Place the new thermostat, spring down, into the engine and place the thermostat gasket over the thermostat.
  5. Place the thermostat intake housing onto the thermostat gasket. Thread the bolts into the thermostat intake by hand to avoid cross-threading the bolts and then tighten them using a socket and ratchet.
Additional information:
  1. Clean mating areas of timing chain cover and thermostat housing.
  2. Install thermostat (spring side down) into recessed machined groove on timing chain cover.
  3. Position thermostat housing on timing chain cover.
  4. Install two housing-to-timing chain cover bolts. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm).
    CAUTION Housing must be tightened evenly and thermostat must be centered into recessed groove in timing chain cover. If not, it may result in a cracked housing, damaged timing chain cover threads or coolant leaks.
  5. Install lower radiator hose on thermostat housing.
  6. Install splash shield.
  7. Lower vehicle.
  8. Fill cooling system.
  9. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
  10. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.
Good Luck and if this helps don't forget to vote.

How do I remove the entire thermostat housing on my 1998 acura 1.6 litre engine


Welcome to Fixya

Thermostats almost always reside in a housing at the engine side end of the upper radiator hose. Drain coolant first, then loosen radiator hose to access thermostat housing. If you can't find the housing, consult your vehicle service manual for location. Loosen the bolts that hold down the thermostat housing. Remove the housing to reveal the thermostat. Use a scraper to remove old gasket material from all mounting surfaces. Place new gasket on housing. Use a small amount of grease or adhesive to hold it in place during reassembly. Reconnect all hoses. Close radiator petcock. Refill cooling system with recommended 50/50 blend of water and coolant. Run engine and heater to purge air from cooling system. Recheck the coolant level once engine is cool.

Please see this link. This came from one of our good expert here in fixya.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Where is the thermostat located on 2001 mustang


You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing which is bolted to the engine. Remove the bolts (not the hose) and lift the housing to expose the thermostat (may require a little prying with a screwdriver or similar tool). Note how the old thermostat is fitted (which end is up), lift it out of the engine, and then remove all traces of gasket from the housing and the engine. Install the new thermostat and gasket, replace the bolts, add coolant as necessary, and you're done.
