    As I said earlier, given the fact that the average internal water tank 
won't handle much pressure without being specifically designed and built for 
the thermostat allows us to build heat in the engine while keeping the water 
in the tank near ambient temp. As the water in the engine heats up the 
thermostat opens a little and allows just enough circulation to maintain the 
specified temp while hopefully gradually heating the coolant in the internal 
tank........Ardun Doug
