Yea, I want the kind that fails open thats for sure.  "Not cheap" is the
problem, I do see them for around $100 but Im not nearly that desperate yet,
and even then, for $100 I can come up with another way of doing it... or fix
the bad ones.

Fresh  oil for the winter storage and I noticed my thermostat was  blown,
CRAP!  Dwindling supply of these.  but when removing it I  found that the

I changed it out, but  still. dwindling supply, I may take the old one and
try and find the  hole.  What kind of Alcohol is in them?
You do know there's a guy on the Samba that's selling new "old style"  ones 
right? They're not cheap, but they're the style that fails open, versus the 
 new VW stock that fail closed.
