Thanks a lot for all your help. I was able to change the thermostat and put it back without removing the intake maifold. Tomorrow I will start instaling things on reverse order. I think that I will strugle with the alternator timing built. I also did it without draining the coolant. Should I do it if so, how? Then I beleive that I have to bleed it. Any help with both proceses wil be apreciatrd!

Thank you for replying. My question is how can you take the intake out? It is hard to take out. Is it connected to anything from the back-side?

Seems like nothing on this vehicle is easy or straight forward. I'll attach the documentation on how to remove the intake manifold with my original answer.
