Some say you don't have to drain it all, you just let whatever pours out pour out when you're changing it and then top it back off and bleed. I drained it as best I could though. If you need a thermostat I have one... Was working perfectly and actually replaced a few years back but I cahnged it again cause I did the fan delete mod so you have to put in a lower temperature one.
