Perkins/Manicooler Thermostat

Iím thinking my thermostat may be sticking. Iím looking to change it out. I have the 6.3544 model NA with the manicooler. Is there just one thermostat or two?
The book says itís just one and itís under the thermostat housing neck on top thatís headed towards manicooler and when changing out make sure to intstall one that is a bypass thermostat.
When I go to order thermostat, the Perkins people (Diesel Parts Direct) says that it takes two. Has anyone changed one out with the MANICOOLER and not the multicooler? The book says the multicooler takes two and theyíre in a different housing that is below this neck. Here is a picture of the neck on mine.

I have a Perkins 6.354 -- not a 6.354.4. But, I do have a Boman Manicooler.

It has only one thermostat. See the instructions linked below:

How about the above? It works in an incognito tab for me, so it is in the cut-and-paste at your end, but maybe putting it in url brackets makes it clickable?

Thanks that worked. Now I just need to order right thermostat and gasket. Maybe order from TAD if they carry it and it’s a large enough order.
Thanks again

TAD says they have a minimum order of $50, or something like that. But their "fine" for a small order is only a $10 handling fee.

When I've needed $2 gaskets fast -- I've just paid the $10. It was a small drop in the bucket, especially next to what FedEx charged!

I ordered thermostats and gasket from TAD today. When I told them what my set up was with the Manicooler, they new exactly what thermostats and gasket I needed and yes there are two thermostats. They are under the thermostat housing with the neck on it thatís headed toward Manicooler. I just wanted to make sure I had right parts on hand before working on it . When you only have weekends to boat you donít want to waste any time waiting for parts.
Here is my exact engine with Manicooler set up . I think the multicooler has the thermostats in a housing thatís bolted to front of cooler.
